Letter to the Editor: Save the Mexican Gray Wolf

Senator Flake has, once again introduced a bill (S 368) which would drive the Mexican Gray Wolf to extinction.

This legislation, under the misleading name of the Mexican Gray Wolf Recovery Plan, would allow states and industry to dictate the terms of the recovery plan, rather than follow the advice of scientists who have studied the issue. New Mexico took similar action which successfully undermined meaningful recovery in that state. If Arizona follows suit, this magnificent animal will reach a point of no return.

There are only 113 of these lobos left in the wild and account for less than one half of one percent of livestock that is harmed. They rarely if ever, harm humans. In fact, cows kill more people in the U.S. annually than wolves.

Senator Flake should take note that 87% of registered voters in Arizona agree that wolves are a vital part of America's wilderness and natural heritage and honor the wishes of his constituents by withdrawing the bill.
