CALL TO ACTION
Within three weeks, the Fish and Wildlife Service intends to release a pair of known problem wolves at McKenna Park in the Gila Wilderness. This is just 10 miles from several ranches in the region.
The female is F1108 (look up Mexican Wolf F1108 for more information on her) which was part of the Aspen Pack that officially killed 12 yearlings on the Adobe Ranch in 2007. The male is M1133 (look up Mexican Wolf M1133 for his history) which was the wolf that had to be darted and removed for loitering in a residential neighborhood in Reserve, NM this past January.
The only reason for this release is to introduce the DNA of F1108 into the existing wolf population in the wild to shore up deteriorating genetics.
Please encourage Congressman Pearce to introduce legislation to defund the Mexican Wolf Reintroduction Program. Feel free to use the example email below. Please send in your emails as soon as possible to Fred Huff in the Congressman’s Las Cruces Office.

Dear Congressman Pearce,
The Mexican Wolf Reintroduction Program continues in disarray. The destruction of local economies, the unrelenting deception, fear and intimidation perpetrated by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on the people of the affected communities and the devastation to ranching and outfitting industries continues unabated.
(I), (We), (Organization), (Unit of Local Government) urge you to lead the effort to stop this egregious program by introducing legislation to permanently defund the Mexican Wolf Reintroduction Program.
This travesty has to end.
