SALEM, OR -- Oregon's Fish and Wildlife Commission voted Monday to remove wolves from the state's Endangered Species list. However, the move doesn't remove all protections for the wolf.
Oregon's Wolf Plan will continue to keep non-lethal measures on top of the list to prevent attacks on livestock. And, it remains against the law to kill a wolf, with a penalty of $6,250 and a year in jail.
The Commission heard nearly 11 hours of testimony before voting four to two in favor of delisting the wolf.
