ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) -- The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, in a wide-ranging update to the state's endangered species list, says the bald eagle and gray wolf are no longer considered to be in jeopardy in the state.

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, a venomous rattlesnake.

The list was last updated in 1996.
