(KRQE) – Officials are planning on moving some wolves around the Southwest.

The US Fish and Wildlife Service and the Arizona Game and Fish want to take Mexican gray wolves captured in New Mexico and release them in Arizona.  Federal officials also plan to remove un-collared wolves with the fox mountain pack from New Mexico; they’ve been blamed for killing several livestock.

Environmentalists are criticizing the removal order.
