INDICE DE GALERIAS
ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources says the bald eagle and gray wolf are no longer considered endangered in the state.
On Monday, the state made sweeping updates to the list of species that it considers endangered, threatened or of special concern.
The Star Tribune (http://bit.ly/1cUxh8B ) reports 29 species — including the bald eagle, the gray wolf and the snapping turtle —were removed from the endangered category. Those three are now of special concern, the lowest rung on the list.
While no mammals were elevated to endangered, seven species of birds were, including two types of sparrows and a burrowing owl. Also newly listed as endangered are the northern cricket frog and the massasauga (mas-eh-SOH'-guh), a venomous rattlesnake.
The list was last updated in 1996.
