February 8, 2007 - Final Rule to Delist Gray Wolf Western Great Lakes DPS

This Rule is no longer in effect.

 

On September 29, 2008, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia ruled in favor of the Humane Society and vacated this final rule back to the Service. This means that the final rule is no longer applicable. Subsequently, the Service published the April 2, 2009 Final Rule to delist the Gray Wolf - Western Great Lakes DPS.
