Wolf News Update

New Mexico releases halted
A federal judge has halted the release of Mexican wolves in New Mexico until the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service receives permission from state officials for such releases. This is the latest in an ongoing dispute between state and federal officials. State officials filed a lawsuit after FWS released wolves without a state permit. State officials have declined to provide a permit until the FWS moves forward with updating its recovery plan for the species.

Banff wolf killed
A female wolf from the five-member Bow Valley wolf pack was killed by wildlife officials in Canada’s Banff National Park last week after the wolf demonstrated increasingly bold behavior. Officials determined the wolf posed a threat to human safety.

Pacific Rim park wolves
Bold behavior toward humans prompted Parks Canada wildlife officials to issue warnings for the public to use caution around wolves in the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve. There have been a series of recent incidents involving wolves approaching or following people, and entering occupied camp sites.
