Nope. They have had protected status for some time in some areas. Here in Michigan, the gray wolf was recently taken off the "protected" list and we're set to have a legal wolf hunting season this fall. There are a lot of people who oppose it and are trying to get a ballot initiative going to get it outlawed.
Interestingly, wolves exist in a great many parts of the world. In fact, every dog in the world, any color, any size, any breed, are direct descendants of a small band of wolves in lower Sibera... So wolves are more endangered here in the Anericas than they are in Asia.
