Officials agree on grey wolf plan


ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Ranchers, environmentalists and county officials from New Mexico and Arizona have agreed on a plan to deal with the re-introduction of the grey wolf.

Ranchers have long had a problem with the plan because the wolves have been attacking their livestock.

Under the agreement, ranchers will get money from a trust fund to pay for livestock deaths. The money will also pay for measures to scare wolves away from livestock.

Mexican grey wolves were first re-introduced in New Mexico and Arizona in 1998 as a way to bring the animal back to its native habitat. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
