Federal trappers could at any moment
capture and permanently incarcerate the alpha female of the Fox Mountain
Mexican wolf pack—another wolf convicted of committing the crime of killing
The capture order is just the latest in
an endless succession of taxpayer-subsidized management actions intended to preserve
grazing in wolf country.
Enough is enough!
Mexican wolf recovery will fail unless we reform the federal
grazing program. Wolves need room to roam. We must end livestock
grazing in the Mexican wolf recovery area wherever possible.
Tell Congress to give Mexican wolves a
fighting chance by authorizing a program to retire public lands grazing
WildEarth Guardians has
identified a number of ranchers in the Greater Gila who would willingly retire
their grazing permits, if only Congress would allow them to do so. A
solution is within reach. The Rural
Economic Vitalization Act, introduced last year, would allow federal grazing
permittees to voluntarily relinquish their grazing permits back to the federal
government in exchange for compensation paid by a third party.
Voluntary grazing permit
retirement is a win-win-win solution for ranchers, taxpayers, and, most
importantly, Mexican wolves.
Please join us in urging
your Congressional representative to enact REVA and save Mexican wolf recovery.
