Oh no! This is terrible :(. Perhaps it ate a elk/fish/hare with some sort of problem or sickness. I hope they find out what really happened though.

Not likely... if there aren't any humans in the area, no one would have then been around to poison anything, and if it was just a "sick" animal I don't see how it would effect the wolf much. There are of course diseases you have to consider/contend with and ilk.

It stinks, but the most we can do for Mexican gray wolves right now is stop fawning over the gray wolves in America that don't need any help whatsoever and directing our attention to these guys.
True. Although I still feel that all wolves need our help.
When you're dealing with funding and such, you need to prioritize. Gray wolves shouldn't be a priority but people make them out to be one, when in reality Mexican gray wolves in the United States should receive much more attention than they are being alloted right now.

But I didn't mean funding-wise, simply that all animals/wolves should be respected.

"Help" implies some form of assistance and typically with wolves it describes conservation.

Well, it seems like once an animal is removed from the endangered list and is finally recovering, then people start killing it again. Although Mexican Gray Wolves are even more endangered now. :(

Not exactly. With gray wolves, when they are removed from the list, it means the population is (overdue) stable, which then in turns allows regulated/designated hunting seasons to manage the population - they aren't culled in the manner that would make them "endangered;" the gray wolf population in particular has been stable for a very long time now.

The program that sought to help conserve the Mexican gray wolves is struggling greatly. Mexican gray wolves have already had a few deaths to their small population, which then, slowly, sadly diminishes any progress the wolves had recently. I hope they'll be able to pick back up, but given how everyone focuses so much on wolves that don't need the attention, I don't see it happening.

People need to focus on the most endangered wolves/animals first before it's too late.

As humans, we feel bad because we're humans. I have to agree that it is sad, but the wolf is in a better place now. ;)
Also, people feel bad even if they didn't cause the problem ir aren't related to the problem.
