CHEYENNE - Wyoming would maintain fewer breeding pairs of wolves than what 
the federal government wanted but would drop its shoot-on-sight provision under 
a measure recommended by a House committee Monday. 
House Bill 155 represents a compromise agreement between lawmakers and the 
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service over a state plan that would allow for removal of 
federal protection of the rapidly expanding species. The service last month 
rejected the plan approved by Legislature in 2003. 
Rep. Mike Baker, R-Thermopolis, sponsor of the bill, said whether one 
believes that wolves were properly reintroduced into the Yellowstone region by the 
federal government doesn't matter now.
