State officials hope to stop feds from releasing wolves in New Mexico

News

NEW MEXICO (KRQE) – It’s now up to a federal judge to decide whether state Game and Fish officials will be able to stop the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services from releasing wolves in New Mexico.

The Wildlife Service wants to release ten Mexican gray wolves into the wild. But the state claims releasing the wolves will harm the elk, deer and antelope population.

The judge says he’ll issue his ruling in two weeks.
