Wildfire Threatens Endangered Mexican Wolves

Wildfire Threatens Endangered Mexican Wolves
June 3, 2011

Wildlife officers are on the ground in the area of the Wallow Fire to help any animals that could be affected by the fire.

One main priority is the survival of four packs of endangered Mexican wolves that live in the area.

The Arizona Game and Fish Department is worried the fire could destroy a den where one of the packs is raising some pups.

Officials say they can't remove the pups and return them later because the adult wolves would not accept them.

Some burnout operations have been conducted in hopes of protecting the dens.

This stinks. I hope they are able to protect the dens efficiently, but what can you do - especially since they aren't technically supposed to remove the pups. If their efforts fail, though, it will be an unfortunate loss. ):

I agree, I really hope they can manage to protect the dens and keep them and the wolves undamaged. But they can't really do much, which is unfortunate.

Oh dear. Hopefully they can protect the dens, but if they fail after great efforts, at least they did what they could.

That's bad, I hope the off-spring and just wolves in general are okay.

Let's keep our hopes up that the dens are protected.

That's sad. I hope they can help the packs, but the pack will still keep the pups.
