here, and it’s not just dead cows.
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
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.
WildEarth Guardians to petition Congress to investigate her case.
For the Lobos,
Carnivore Protection Director
