Otero County passes Mexican Wolf resolution

“Otero County’s Resolution No. 09-08-2016/105-10 urges the state of New Mexico and the New Mexico Congressional Delegation to ensure the U.S. Department of the Interior (DOI) Secretary implements a pause to the Mexican Gray Wolf Recovery Program (MGWRP) unless and until a complete and independent review of the MGWRP is implemented.

It also urges Congress to enact legislation deferring to the states on management of Mexican gray wolves and to support local, state and private conservation efforts without serious and adverse effects to private property rights, economic development and western communities.”
