After 45 years, the gray wolf is no longer on the endangered species list. The Trump administration announced the animal’s population has had a “successful recovery”. Gray Wolves in the U.S. now top 6,000. But, a group called The Defenders of Wildlife is planning to sue over the decision, which it called “premature and reckless”. Gray wolves once faced near-extinction in the U.S. because of trapping, trophy hunting, and habitat destruction.
