Federal court weighing in on Mexican Gray Wolves


ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A federal appeals court is weighing whether the feds can release more Mexican Gray Wolves into the New Mexico wild without permission from the state.

The Department of the Interior is currently under an injunction preventing them from releasing more wolves. It comes after a release in 2015 even though the state had denied them a permit.

An appeals court heard arguments Wednesday, but it hasn’t said when a ruling will be handed down.
