Tragedy in the Southwest

Mexican wolf M805
On December 14, wild Mexican gray wolf F1105 was shot dead on private land in New Mexico at the direction of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The lone 4-yr-old female was unable to find a mate in the wild and thus was reportedly attracted to local dogs. Lobos of the Southwest urges us to speak up for Mexican gray wolves. This tragedy is one more reason to release more critically endangered Mexican gray wolves into the wild.  Please read the press release here and tell USFWS that it's time to expedite more releases of captive wolves into the their ancestral wilds of the southwest.
