   Government Blacks Out Nearly 700 Pages of Public Records. Join Guardians to Demand Transparency    

Dear Guardian,

Something stinks here, and it’s not just dead cows.

Wildlife Services, the notorious federal wildlife-killing agency finally provided WildEarth Guardians with 900 pages of records related to the capture and incarceration of the mother of the Fox Mountain Mexican wolf pack, but they blacked out nearly 700 pages of information!

You’d think national security was at stake given the level of secrecy.

Please join our letter to members of the New Mexico Congressional delegation requesting that they investigate why the documents were obscured.

The mother of the Fox Mountain pack was captured for purportedly killing livestock. But the limited evidence we’ve received from Wildlife Services is sketchy. For example, in two incidents attributed to the Fox Mountain pack, the cow carcasses were found either in a completely dried out state or in “advanced decomposition”—difficult, if not impossible to determine the causes of death. If this is their evidence, then the feds must immediately release the Mexican wolf mother back into the wild to her five pups and lifelong mate.

The Fox Mountain mother is incarcerated for life, but she may be innocent of the crimes for which she was convicted. As only one of six breeding females in the wild, her life is vital to this endangered species’ survival. She and her pack need our help.

Please join WildEarth Guardians to petition Congress to investigate her case.

For the Lobos,
