Reviewers blast wolf plan science

FILE - This April 18, 2008, file photo provided by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife shows a gray wolf.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service peer review panel released its report Friday Feb. 7, 2014. It represents a significant setback for the pending proposal to take gray wolves off the endangered species list except in the desert Southwest.
