Last February 2011 US Federal wildlife officials confirmed that 50 mexican wolves are living in the wild in Arizona and New Mexico, 14 of them are wild-born pups from 2010. This is great news considering that a year earlier the count was 42. Good but not great is that there are only two breeding pairs out of the 50 wolves. But this is better than nothing and the breeding season is happening right now and expecting new litters by mid-april to mid-may.
Let´s just hope that law iniciative to withdraw wolves from the status of protected species is not approved, because that will be a sentence to exctintion not only for mexican wolves but also for all continental US wolves.
