Docket ID FWS-HQ-ES-2013-0073 Re: Removing the Gray Wolf (Canis lupus) from the List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife

I'm writing to you today, to voice my opposition to the proposal to remove the gray wolf from the list of endangered and threatened wildlife.

There is no other animal on earth that seems more reviled than the wolf species.  As a predator, it rates alongside lions, tigers, bears, etc., but where these species are protected for (or in spite of) their predatory nature, the wolf is seen as a pariah, a "varmint" by cattlemen and others.

Please reconsider your proposal to remove the gray wolf from the endangered and threatened list. They are not yet fully recovered, and given the vehement hatred they face, their removal quite possibly could lead to their total extinction.  I truly hope you will consider my opposition, as well as that of many others, to your proposal.

Thank you for your consideration.
