US, state officals agree to collaborate on Mexican wolf recovery

News

The New Mexico Department of Game and Fish and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife have reached an agreement about the reintroduction of the Mexican grey wolf.

The state had tried to block any more animals from being released until the feds had a clear plan.

Now, the two have announced they will be working together to determine new releases.

The ultimate goal is to build the population up so that the wolf can be de-listed

There is also ongoing concerns from ranchers about the wolves killing livestock.

They continue to fight any new releases.
