New mexico's 52(?) wolves in danger

Post by Kenai Wolf » Fri Jun 27, 2008 9:13 am

to quote the email I got:
"Once extinct in the wild, wolves in the Southwest are struggling to survive. Just 52 wild Southwest wolves remain, making them the most endangered wolves in the world.

But for years, New Mexico Congressman Steve Pearce has led efforts to eliminate these very wolves from the wild. Now, he wants to be the state’s newest Senator -- and gain even greater power in Washington.
... "

That's just a summarized version.

Actually, I believe the Egyptian Wolf, in total, has 20-50 remaining.

The Mexican Wolf may only have that many in the wild, but they do have a few hundred in captive breeding programs.
