Wolves may be re-introduced to southern NM


ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – The Arizona Game and Fish Commission is supporting an alternative for managing Mexican gray wolves along the Arizona-New Mexico border.

The commission voted in favor of the proposal which would allow up to 300 wolves to be re-introduced.

Supporters say that would help develop a self-sustaining population.

The wolves are also being re-introduced in far southwest New Mexico, but the plan has come under fire because the wolves have been killing livestock.
