Halt Plans to Kill Mexican Wolf

The United States Fish and Wildlife Service signed an order authorizing the immediate killing of an endangered Mexican gray wolf female.

While the Mexican Grey Wolf, "lobos", (Canis lupus baileyi) has been re-intoduced, it's survial is still at risk. Once extinct in the wild and breed only in captivity, the remaining 42 wolves need federal protection- and they should have it as the are listed as an Endangered Species, and should be protected under the Undangered Species Act.

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service found that human-caused mortality was threatening this subspecies. The trapping, shooting, poisioning and habitat loss continue to put this animal at risk for extinction. Over the past several years, the U.S. Forest Service approved continued livestock grazing on more than 500,000 acres in the Gila National Forest portion of the Blue Range Wolf Recovery Area alone. The public lands habitat of this wolf needs upgraded safeguards, rather than continued rubber-stamping of livestock grazing on federal land.

Do not kill the Mexican Wolves. Relocate them and restore their recovery areas rather than catering to the livestock industry.
