The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service recently announced the reopening of the comment period on the May 5 proposed rule to delist the gray wolf population in the Western Great Lakes.

The action will allow for additional public review and the inclusion of any new information, the USFWS said. Comments must be received on or before Sept. 26.

This follows a comment period that ended July 5. At the close of that period, the USFWS said it would consider all new information and other data and make a final decision on the proposal. Now, at the earliest, a decision won’t come until fall.
