“Our deer population is down, we’ve had some rough winters, and wolves have to eat, of course,” he said. “People bring deer in by feeding, the deer come to people’s houses through bird feeders, and getting attracted that way, and that brings the wolves closer as well.” says Kipp Duncan, a DNR Conservation Officer who covers the townships north of Duluth. That creates more opportunities for conflict between wolves and domestic animals. Read More…

Mexican-gray-wolf-Jim-Clark-USFWS-200x130TWO MORE MEXICAN GRAY WOLVES RELEASED INTO THE WILD

This week, according to the Defenders of Wildlife Blog, wildlife biologists with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service released two captive Mexican gray wolves into the Arizona wild. The hope is that this pregnant female and her mate will contribute some much needed genetic diversity to this critically endangered population of wolves. Recovery efforts began in Arizona and New Mexico in 1998, after the species was pushed to near extinction in the 1970s. Today, thanks in part to the success of this captive breeding program, there are 109 wolves living in the wild in the Southwest. Defenders wants to see more wolves released into the wild to increase the genetic diversity – just like the Service did this week. Next, the Service needs to develop a detailed, long range plan for releasing many more wolves, and a science-based recovery plan, for which these rare wolves have waited almost 40 years.
