CHEYENNE -- State attorneys are preparing to go to court to appeal the U.S. 
Department of Interior's recent rejection of Wyoming's wolf management plan, 
Gov. Dave Freudenthal said Tuesday.

At the same time, state officials have filed a federal Freedom of Information 
Act request for all U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service documents related to 
several aspects of gray wolf reintroduction and management.

Freudenthal also plans to write Interior Secretary Gale Norton an outline of 
the past year's events in which, Freudenthal claims, the federal government 
changed its initial position supporting the state's wolf management law.

Plus, he said, the Interior Department's scientific review of the state's 
wolf management plan passed muster with 10 of the 11 federally appointed 
biologists who studied it, yet the agency still decided to reject the state plan.
