Extinct in the wild, Mexican wolves have again been re-released into the
wild -- into the Blue Range country on the Arizona/New Mexico border.
This is a very exciting event, and also difficult because, unlike the
wolves that came to Yellowstone and central Idaho, the Mexican wolf restoration
comes from the offspring of wolves that were taken from the wild, and
saved before their extinction occurred. The wolves were carefully bred,
but those released are not wild wolves, yet. They need to learn to hunt
and avoid humans, of which there are some nasty ones in the vicinity.
I will not be doing more than sporadic updates on the Mexican wolves,
but U.S. Fish and Wildlife and Service has a good page for this struggling
Gray Wolf Recovery Program. 1-27-06.
Sadly this program is imploding, with the wolf population down 3 years
in a row at the end of 2005.
