Tucson group sues feds to speed up Mexican gray wolf reintroduction

A Tucson-based Center for Biological Diversity sued the federal government Wednesday to speed reintroduction of the Mexican gray wolf in Arizona and New Mexico. The conservation group contends that officials have failed to respond to the group’s 2004 petition for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

This is a typical example of bureaucratic red tape, stalling, and finger pointing.  While nothing gets done and the number of Mexican gray wolves in the wild continues to decrease.  It’s very simple to me: if Arizona and New Mexico can’t get things done, then USFWS needs to step in.  We have already lost one of the few breeding females with the capture of the Fox Mountain alpha female, a real travesty of justice that Wildlife “Services” still won’t release the facts on.  So far only one Mexican gray wolf, a female named Ernesta, is being prepared for release into the wild.  While the genetic pool continue to get weaker due to lack of diversity.  Dozens of wolves in breeding centers have been prepared and are ready to join their numbers.  Let the lobos go free before it’s too late.  Extinction is forever!
