Ladder Ranch wolf program resumes with state’s OK

The State Game Commission on Friday approved the transfer of five Mexican gray wolves from Washington state to Ted Turner’s Ladder Ranch in Southern New Mexico, an action that activists say represents a shift in the commission’s policy and may lead to the release of more of the endangered wolves in the state. The Ladder Ranch wolves, however, will be released to the wild in Mexico…The Ladder Ranch was permitted to bring in the first Mexican wolf earlier this month.
