Federal wildlife officials propose changes to endangered Mexican gray wolf management plan

From Arizona Public Radio:

Federal wildlife officials are proposing several changes to the recovery plan for endangered Mexican gray wolves in the Southwest. It comes after a federal judge ordered the agency to rewrite its plan to comply with federal law. KNAU’s Ryan Heinsius reports.

The proposal from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service removes the 325-wolf population limit contained in the original 2015 plan. In addition, the agency wants nearly two-dozen released wolves to survive to breeding age by 2030 to increase genetic diversity, and temporarily restrict three forms of allowable killing of the animals.
