JACKSON - Wyoming has reassigned all but one member of the state's wolf management team because of recent federal action to put northern Rockies wolf management back under federal control.

In recent months, Wyoming had hired four people to manage wolves in the state. However, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service this fall reversed its earlier action to transfer wolf management responsibilities to Wyoming, Idaho and Montana.

That action came after a lawsuit by environmental groups.

The Wyoming Game and Fish Commission voted Monday to reassign all but one of the wolf specialists to other duties.
