Stop Livestock Grazing in Wolf Recovery Area

  • By: Animal Advocates
  • Target: Fish And Wildlife Service, David Hayes, Ken Salazar, Barack Obama

Conflict between ranchers and wolves will continue as long as the U.S. Forest Service continues to approve livestock grazing in the Blue Range Wolf Recovery Area on more than 500,000 acres in the Gila National Forest. This will encourge the wolf to prey upon livestock and in turn be shot, trapped or poisioned.

With only 42 wolves left, and recent re-introducion to the Blue Range Wolf Recovery Area, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service needs to stop allowing livestock grazing if it is going to be a successful re-introduction and recovery of the Mexican Grey Wolf.

The public lands habitat of this wolf needs upgraded safeguards, rather than continued rubber-stamping of livestock grazing on federal land.
