The Mexican Grey Wolf Issue In New Mexico



New Mexico Ranchers Fight to Stay Alive with Mexican Gray Wolf

The US Fish and Wildlife Service Mexican Wolf reintroduction program has proposed 8 new release sites on the Tonto National Forest that surround the community of Pleasant Valley.
 
  • Wolves are adept at determining prey vulnerability and the human victims of predatory attacks tend to be mainly on children (Mech 1970, Linnell et al. 2002, McNay 2002a)!
  • Recent proposals by the USFWS, USDAFS, and AzGFD placed wolf release sites where it is well known that elk and deer populations are very low, and permitted cattle, including calves, horses and dogs are present.  What do you think the agencies purposefully planned to feed the wolves?
  • Wolves may attack a dog even when people are present and a wolf excited by the presence of a dog may be more likely to act aggressively toward people (ADFG 2008, McNay 2Q02b)!
  • Aggressive behaviors by wolves are often associated with habituation and food conditioning.  The wolves planned for release have been raised by humans in facilities where they .are habituated and food conditioned!
