Wyoming wolves under attack

The Gray Wolf has been taken off the Endangered Species list in Wyoming, and animal rights groups are fighting back with a lawsuit.

In October, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service approved Wyoming's plan to control their own gray wolf population, meaning the species, which nearly went extinct not long ago, was removed from the federal list of Endangered Species. That means that the more than 250 gray wolves living outside of Yellowstone National Park are fair game for trophy hunters. Since October, at least 50 gray wolves have been legally gunned down or trapped and killed.

Jane Velez-Mitchell speaks to Michael Markarian, Chief Program and Policy Officer of the Humane Society of the United States, about the lawsuit the Humane Society and The Fund for Animals have just filed to challenge the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's ruling.
