Rep. Dan Newhouse: Follow the science when it comes to gray wolves

The GOP recently introduced the “Trust the Science Act” to strengthen the management of the gray wolf.

The legislation would require a reissuing of a 2020 ruling that took the gray wolf off the Endangered Species List, and this time the animal would need to stay off. The final ruling would not be subject to judicial review. Representative Dan Newhouse tells us why.

“It’s been proven, and the decision was made that the gray wolf is a true success story, and putting it back on the threatened and Endangered list detracts from our ability as a country to focus on those other species that truly need our help.”

In addition to putting more resources into other animals, Newhouse said an overpopulation of the gray wolves would also be a danger to ranchers.
