Arizona panel backs efforts to delist gray wolves

Posted: Updated:
PHOENIX (AP) -

The Arizona Game and Fish Commission is supporting an effort by two members of Congress to remove gray wolves from the endangered-species list.

The Arizona commission voted unanimously Wednesday to endorse the letter to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's director by Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah and Republican Rep. Cynthia Lummis of Wyoming.

The letter says wolves aren't endangered and don't need federal protections.

The commission also voted unanimously to continue state efforts to restore the Mexican wolf in Arizona.
