¡Próspero Año Nuevo! Good News for Lobos!
December 9, 2010 – The USFWS and AZGFD announced plans to release a four-year-old Mexican gray wolf, one of the former Saddle Pack pups, back into the wild along the Arizona-New Mexico border next month. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service made the announcement late Thursday, saying the conditions are right for the release of the male wolf into an area frequented by the Hawks Nest pack in the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest. Officials hope the wolf will be a potential mate for the pack’s breeding female. January will mark the beginning of breeding season, our fingers are crossed that this lucky boy finds love.
