The kill-order for the matriarch wolf has been rescinded!

Last year, only 58 Mexican wolves and six breeding pairs survived in New Mexico and Arizona, their only home in the wild. In spite of the monumental difficulties facing the Wolf Reintroduction Program, the US Fish and Wildlife Service has issued a kill-order for the alpha wolf of the Fox Mountain Pack of Mexican gray wolves.

According to Michael Robinson of The Center for Biological Diversity, "This kill order is a shocking return to reviled and destructive Bush administration policies toward Mexican gray wolves. Resources should be used to immediately hire a range-rider, rather than spend a greater amount of taxpayer money to shoot a radio-collared wolf in front of her pups.”

      We could explore other options by giving the lobos a natural food source. Take the overflow of sick, injured animals from Animal control to the mountain.

      58 members of this subspecies left on the planet in their ancestral territory. Bajillions of bovines and humans invading their land. Guess whose side I'm on.

      Why kill them when we obviously have the technology and man power to move them or create a preserve for them. Also, these wolves are clearly endangered, and killing them could upset the balance of the ecosystem.
