F&G Commission Randy Budge of Pocatello asked, "How did the Fish & Wildlife Service get so crosswise with Wyoming?" and asked "what we plan to do to get Wyoming to come along, and what we can do to change that situation." Robin Thorson, regional director of FWS, responded, "I can't offer why Wyoming does not want to do a state management plan, but they don't, and that is the situation. ... I'm sorry I can't explain." She said she respects states' sovereign decisions.
