Wolves are Back, Ranchers are Mad

Despite the age-old battle between ranchers and the Grey Wolf, the wolves are coming back.

Reintroduced would be a better word. The USFWS will be releasing the wolves back into Arizona and other southwestern states, thanks to a federal judge.

The ranchers, through the Coalition of Arizona-New Mexico Counties for Stable Economic Growth and several other organizations have fought everything from the Southwestern Willow Flycatcher to wolves. They lost this one, though.

One of our local organizations near Palm Springs, The Living Desert is part of the wolf recovery program.

This issue is another one of those where there are no easy answers.
