Mexican gray wolves' 'soft release' into Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest meets June 1 compensation for depredation deadline
BY DIANNE STALLINGS, 4.30.2015
Two Mexican gray wolves were released April 22 into the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forests in eastern Arizona by staff of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Arizona Game and Fish Department.
The Mexican Wolf Interagency Field Team conducted a "soft release" of wolves Male 1130 and Female 1305, meaning the wolves will be confined in an enclosure until the animals chew through the fencing and self-release. The release is part of a federal wolf reintroduction project in New Mexico and Arizona that many Lincoln County ranchers oppose.
