RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — Illegal killings and political resistance have undercut the return of two species of endangered wolves despite more than $80 million in government spending.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has agreed to a deadline to craft a recovery plan for the endangered Mexican gray wolf.
The agency reached a settlement with environmentalists, Utah and Arizona, but it still needs the approval of a federal judge.
Suspicion over federal plans to restore endangered wolves in the Southwest has spread to Colorado and Utah, where ranchers and officials are fiercely resisting any attempt to import the predators.
Utah state officials are balking at the possible inclusion of southern Utah in a recovery zone for the Mexican gray wolf.
