Mexican Wolves!
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 reintroduction: Mexican Gray Wolf Recovery Program.
