New Mexico resists efforts to restore Mexican gray wolves

New Mexico has made a decision to stop assisting the federal government’s efforts to bring back the Mexican Gray Wolf to the southwest.  The decision is more symbolic at this point as the state is still required to conduct population surveys and protect the wolves as they are considered an endangered species.  The restoration program is primarily funded by the federal government.  Gray Wolf restoration is supported by environmental groups and former governor Bill Richardson.  It is opposed by the current governor  Susana Martinez and some ranching groups.  To read more go the LA Times  New Mexico abandons efforts to restore Mexican gray wolves – latimes.com.
