Letter: ‘Flake’ is a fitting name | Politics-national |

'Flake' is a fitting name, considering he doesnt think Federal Law applies to them. Protect The Wolves™ is working towards getting these elected officials into court that seem to think that federal laws do not apply to them. We need to hold these Officials Accountable! The media made it appear it was the Tribe that demanded the first Mexican Gray female be shot. That is not true. We spoke with White Mountain Apache Fish and Game, they only suggested something be done about her. Which rather than running on an old NEPA, she should have been returned to a captive [...]

Members of the Mexican wolf Interagency Field Team completed the annual year­end population survey, documenting a minimum of 113 Mexican wolves in the wild in Arizona and New Mexico at the end of 2016.  The tally compares with a minimum of 97 wild wolves in 2015. “We are encouraged by these numbers, but these 2016 results demonstrate we are still not out of the woods with this experimental population and its anticipated contribution to Mexican wolf recovery,” U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Southwest Regional Director Benjamin Tuggle said Monday. “Our goal is to achieve an average annual growth rate of [...]
