Government Leaves [Mexican] Wolf Pack in the Wild KUNM – FM radio

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will not remove a wolf pack from the wild in southwestern New Mexico. Regional Director Benjamin Tuggle ruled last week that the Middle Fork Pack is highly valuable genetically to the Mexican gray wolf reintroduction program.

  1. On the contrary, Utah is going berserk already before any wolf shows up.
    See on “Sportsmen Group Pushing for Utah Wolf Hunt”. Did you open a Pandora´s box?

  2. Ken Cole says:

    “Caren Cowan of the New Mexico Cattle Growers Association says it is disappointing that the government is not protecting the livestock industry.”

    That’s news to me.

  3. JW says:

    “They have in separate incidents stepped into leghold traps set by unknown parties and were seen in the telemetry monitoring flights that the government carries out running with the leghold traps on limbs”

    That is pathetic. These traps should be banned for ‘recreational’ trapping. They are in many states but should be banned nationally. There is no reason, besides the trapping industries entrenched vice-grip on wildlife management depts. They are not humane.

  4. ProWolf in WY says:

    Ken, maybe she means that the government is not bending over backwards as far to protect the livestock industry.

    Peter, that group in Utah is going berserk.

  5. Chris says:

    “leghold traps set by unknown parties”
    The population of Catron and Greenlee Counties is pretty small. I’d wager that less than 50% of that population are trappers. Most trappers have particular ways of setting their traps. It’s hard to believe that they don’t know or at least suspect who the trappers are.

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."
