Federal agency kills ‘Rusty,’ a Mexican gray wolf blamed in livestock deaths
An endangered Mexican gray wolf has been killed in New Mexico by federal employees, according to a document released by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
The kill order was issued by the agency on March 29 after the wolf’s alleged involvement in the killings of at least 13 cattle. The wolf was killed April 12. The kill order was issued on the 25th anniversary of Mexican wolves’ return to the wild.
