Lawsuit: USFWS has failed to do enough to recover Mexican gray wolf populations
While the Mexican gray wolf population has been growing, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is jeopardizing the successful recovery of the endangered species, according to a lawsuit filed against it.
The lawsuit (attached below) brought by the Center for Biological Diversity and Defenders of Wildlife claims that the Fish and Wildlife Service's new management rule doesn't allow for the wolf's expansion into its historic landscapes and fails to monitor whether the release of captive-bred wolves into the wild leads to genetic intermixing with wild wolves. The lawsuit was brought Tuesday by EarthJustice.
