Plans To Release Gray Wolves Meets Legal Battles

Mexican-Gray-WolfThe federal government is floating a plan that would let endangered Mexican gray wolves roam north toward Flagstaff and across Arizona for the first time in generations.

The Arizona Daily Sun reports that the government's wolf reintroduction program has limited the animals to a recovery area that straddles the Arizona-New Mexico state line.

Officials released a draft of proposed changes last month that, if put into effect, would let wolves roam from western Arizona to eastern New Mexico between Interstates-40 and Ten. The government's effort to reintroduce Mexican wolves in New Mexico and Arizona has stumbled due to legal battles, illegal shootings and other factors.
