Otter on wolves: Negotiations still on

Here is a statement from Jon Hanian, press secretary for Gov. Butch Otter, on the wolf de-listing negotiations between Idaho, Montana, Wyoming and the U.S. Secretary of the Interior:

“The Governor was encouraged to hear that Secretary Salazar continues to  share our belief that wolves are recovered and should be delisted in the northern Rocky Mountains. However the Governor expressed concerns over the latest legislative language proposed by the Secretary of the Interior on Monday. The State of Idaho received and responded to an inquiry from the US Fish and Wildlife Service Tuesday morning. And at this point in time, the Governor is waiting to hear back from the Secretary.”
