New Bill Aiming to Hijack Lobo Recovery Planning

Senator Flake (R-AZ) today reintroduced the deceptively named "Mexican Gray Wolf Recovery Plan Act," a bill that would give unchecked power in Mexican gray wolf recovery planning to special interests and Arizona and New Mexico - states that have repeatedly obstructed efforts to recover the critically endangered species.

Hunting, trapping, and poisoning caused the extinction of Mexican gray wolves in the wild, with only a handful remaining in captivity. Now the species is facing extinction a second time, but at the hands of politicians.
