To the Editor: Thanks for your Jan 22 article: Mexican Gray Wolf released near Alpine. Unfortunately, just releasing to replace wolves that died is woefully inadequate (especially when poaching isn’t vigorously enforced). Fish & Wildlife service need to do their job (they are the “nuisance”).
They need to update their plan to ensure the wolves survival. In order to do this, they must release many wolves. They must remove/ban traps in wolf recovery areas! To reduce livestock conflicts — only allow grazing on public land when range riders are present! This is public land that the public wants wolves on. Fish & Wildlife is supposed to work for the public ... (not private profit/special interests as they’ve been doing). Cows are not wildlife. Release more wolves now.
