The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is required to develop a new Mexican gray wolf management plan within two years, and nearly 80 conservation groups and scientists signed off on a letter Wednesday asking the agency to adopt “a science-based and humane” approach to managing the endangered animal.
Environmental groups argue the agency is not doing enough to increase wolf populations in the wild. But many ranchers in New Mexico say the wolf population is out of control and devastating their livestock numbers.
