Wyoming Governor Matt Mead met Thursday in Cheyenne with Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Director Dan Ashe. The Governor and the two federal officials spent the day discussing a wolf management plan that works for Wyoming and the feds.
Secretary Salazar said that because of the great leadership of Governor Mead and his staff, that Wyoming will soon have a plan he will approve. Since taking office, Governor Mead has actively worked on a plan to return management of wolves to Wyoming and remove the species from the Endangered Species List.
Any accepted plan would need approval of the State Legislature. Governor Mead stated that he firmly advocates that any deal also must have Congressional consent as well.
