    Nice photos, Brian. It’s good to have an occasional cheerful respite from all the sad and/or infuriating stories.

  2. Chris H. says:

    Agreed, nice o see a muley……been a while. Maska, I was listening to NPR’s Science Friday a couple of weeks ago when the forensic team for the wildlife lab in Oregon were the guests. I think I know the answer to this but are hey making any progress on the Mexican Wolf killings?

    Hi, Chris,

    The short answer is “I don’t know.” By the way, if you’re interested in more follow up lobo related discussion, you can still send a message (for a few weeks) to my old e-mail, which I assume you still have. (No doubt you’re aware that I’m the NM resident who used to write grazing lease comments on allotments in the recovery area, etc.) Otherwise, you can get my new one from Ralph, with my permission.

  4. Chris H. says:

    Yes, Maska I am aware. I’ll send you an email shortly. I agree with you that the whole environmental field is in the proverbial toilet. I voted for Obama. On the whole I like or agree with what he has done given what he was given. However, someone needs to better inform him on domestic environmental issues.
    By the way, I suppose I am persona non grata in Springerville for the grazing letters!
