Appeals court removes block on Mexican gray wolf reintroduction

A federal appeals court in Denver on Tuesday lifted an order that blocked the federal release of Mexican gray wolves in New Mexico without the permission of the state Department of Game and Fish. The ruling by the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals came in a case brought last year by the Department of Game and Fish against the U.S. Interior Department and its Fish and Wildlife Service, which manages the wolf-recovery program.
