Fed Halts Red Wolf Recovery in North Carolina

The United States Fish and Wildlife Service has decided to put the brakes on a recovery program for one of the most endangered species of canine in all of North America, the red wolf.  And while the Service assures us that this does not spell the end of the program entirely, it has done little to quell the ire of conservation groups.  “Make no mistake, this is the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service abandoning endangered red wolves while they stand at the brink of extinction…”  The recent decision made by the FWS was to indefinitely suspend plans to introduce more red wolves to those wilds while the effectiveness and impact of the program is investigated.
