We have recently learned that the science sub group, of the disbanded 2011 Mexican Wolf Recovery Team has launched Potential expansion of the Mexican wolf recovery program which is being drafted and evaluated by the science group for the Mexican Wolf Recovery Team that no longer is in place. They have not revealed their proposal to the rest of the recovery team or the public. However, one or two select counties and tribes have now received draft EA’s and supposedly, Draft full blown plans for Mexican wolf expansion into other areas of AZ NM Texas and Mexico. It is a major concern of agriculture industries in these areas that the most recent Mexican wolf managers are operating the program in almost total secrecy in order to ensure public input is not included in the process. If you would like information on this plan please email firstname.lastname@example.org
(Comments are solicited from those few local governments entities that received it, are due Feb 1, 2013.)
It appears that there was no scoping process and no federal register notice.
No Public Input Whatsoever has been solicited. We are not sure this process is legal and will sure find out if there is something to be done about it.
