Save the Fox Mountain Wolf Pack's Pups
Pups from the Fox Mountain wolf pack in the Apache National Forest of western New Mexico urgently need your help. In August your phone calls helped spare their mother when she became the scapegoat for livestock deaths in the wolves' territory -- rather than killing her, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service ordered her capture and removal.
Now separated from their mother, her pups are at risk. Two 6-month-old pups are wandering alone, outside the pack's home territory. They are too young and too vulnerable to hunt or avoid danger.
Please, send a message to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and urge the agency to feed the pups as a temporary response and free their mother so she can care for her young.
Please immediately begin supplemental feeding of the two 6-month-old Mexican wolf pups from the Fox Mountain pack. These pups were found wandering southwestern New Mexico on their own after their mother was trapped out of the wild and their father began wandering widely in search of her. These pups are at risk of starving or stumbling into dangers their parents could have steered them away from.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's decision to trap the pups' mother -- months after the last cattle death attributed to the pack took place -- has left these pups in peril. Please free the Fox Mountain pack's matriarch as quickly as possible to help get Mexican wolf recovery back on track.
