No word on possible Mexican gray wolf shooting

Post by Koa » Sat Apr 06, 2013 9:23 pm

ALBUQUERQUE, New Mexico — It's been more than two months since a federal wildlife specialist reported shooting an animal in southwestern New Mexico that upon closer inspection looked like a Mexican gray wolf, but officials remain tightlipped about the case.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Wildlife Services confirmed Thursday that the January shooting is under investigation.

Officials said they're awaiting lab results to determine whether the animal was in fact an endangered Mexican gray wolf.

They refused to comment on why the employee shot the animal.

Shame to hear that a Mexican gray wolf shooting may have happened with their dwindling numbers. This is one of several cases I've heard of (others I believe being that several people had confused them with coyotes/other.)

Any news on the investigation since this event was a while back?

I just got back from being away for over a week. I've been meaning to catch up on all of the news but it keeps slipping my mind. :) I'll dig around and see what I can find.
