SILVER CITY, N.M. (KRQE) – The Department of Game and Fish is investigating after a Mexican grey wolf was caught by a leg trap.
The wolf was caught in the Gila National Forest. They say the wolf is being treated for minor injuries and will likely be re-released into the wild.
WildEarth Guardians claims a wolf pup also got stuck in a trap and is now on the run with the trap still attached. Game and Fish says it’s unaware of this situation.
Game and Fish is investigating if the trap that captured the adult wolf was legal.
