Court lifts injunction on Mexican wolf releases in NM -- Albuquerque Journal

The federal government is again free to release endangered Mexican gray wolves into the wild in New Mexico, after a U.S. appeals court Tuesday vacated a lower court’s injunction sought by the state.

It was not immediately clear in the wake of the ruling whether the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service would go ahead with wolf releases, or how New Mexico’s Department of Game and Fish will react to the ruling. The state has the option to appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court. -- 4/25/2017
