Gray Wolves

NPR's Mark Roberts reports from Denver on the legal challenge to the federal program reintroducing gray wolves into Yellowstone National Park and the forests of Central Idaho. Two years ago, a Wyoming federal judge decided in favor of a lawsuit brought by the Farm Bureau Federation. He ruled that the reintroduction was illegal and that the wolves must be removed, but he delayed enforcement until a higher court could hear the case. Today, a federal appeals court takes up the case.
