Wolverine Will Not be Listed as Endangered

Posted: Updated:
MISSOULA -

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is no longer looking to have the wolverine listed as an endangered species.

The wolverine has made a steady recovery in the past half century after hunting, trapping and poisoning nearly exterminated them from the lower 48 states in the early 1900s.

The Service initially sought to list the species as endangered based on the climate change model forecasts, but has since determined that the effects of climate change are not likely to place the wolverine in danger of extinction.
