More Dead Wolves…

Does it ever end? I’d like to wake up someday and hear good news about wolves. That all the haters had a change of heart and realized wolves were a vital part of our ecosystem, just like our other apex predators. But alas that would take a miracle.

From the U.S. Fish and Wildlife service:

On Nov. 6, 2010, two wild gray wolves were found dead in separate locations on the Flathead National Forest in northwestern Montana. One wolf was found dead along Coal Creek Road, while the body of the other dead wolf was recovered in the Miller Creek area. Both animals appeared to have died as a result of gunshot wounds.

Killing a wolf is a violation of the Endangered Species Act.

There is a reward of up to $2,500 is for information leading to the identification and prosecution of the person or persons involved in the killing of these wolves.

Poachers Tracking Mexican Grays With Radio Receivers?

Hawks Nest in The Wild

July 17, 2010

The feds are finally waking up to the fact the radio receivers they handed out to ranchers just might be linked to the wolves deaths.

Ya think?  Lets see, the Blue Range Wolf Recovery Area is FOUR MILLION ACRES and the Fort Apache Indian Reservation, where wolves are welcome, is another 1.67 million acres.

That’s the size of  THREE YELLOWSTONES.  How in the heck does anyone find just 38 wolves in two states if they aren’t tracking their collars?  Wake up federal wolf managers.  This is a no brainer.

From The Arizona Star:

“Environmentalists are pushing the feds – “as a precaution” – to take back the radios loaned to ranchers and others in Arizona and New Mexico that allow the wolves to be tracked.”

Take those radio receivers away from the ranchers. Most of the land in the Blue Range Wolf Recovery Area is public land.  If ranchers are found responsible, besides prosecuting them to the full extent of the law, start pulling grazing leases!

This is HOME TO A CRITICALLY ENDANGERED SPECIES.  HELLO!!

It’s not business as usual down there…there are only 38 animals left in the wild, that’s it. The unique genes of every wolf killed is lost forever.

The Hawks Nest alpha female has been  left to raise seven pups with just herself and a yearling wolf. That’s all that’s left of the pack. I hope USFWS is feeding this pack or providing them with food because these pups won’t last long.  The entire situation is egregious beyond words.

Wolves lives are cheap now. Maybe the poachers were taking a page out of the Northern Rockies play book.  They know wolves were slaughtered in the hundreds since their delisting.  What’s one more dead wolf to them?

Mexican gray wolves can’t get any protection when they are listed as the most endangered mammal in North America. How pathetic is that?

APNewsBreak: Third Mexican gray wolf found dead

Associated Press – July 16, 2010 5:55 PM ET

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) – Federal authorities confirmed Friday they are investigating the death of another endangered Mexican gray wolf that was found shot along the New Mexico-Arizona border.

The male wolf is the third to be found dead within the past month. It was a member of the Hawks Nest Pack.

U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service spokesman Tom Buckley called the latest death “very troubling.” He says that leaves the Hawks Nest Pack with an alpha female and a yearling female to hunt for seven pups.

The pack’s alpha male was found shot to death last month on the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest.

Another alpha male, a member of the San Mateo Pack, was found dead of unknown causes a week later.

Buckley says there was a cow found shot to death near where the latest wolf shooting death occurred.
