Finding boundaries for Mexican Gray wolves in Arizona

The AZGFD has been working on Mexican wolf recovery in northern Arizona for the last 17 years and now the area that these wolves could be spotted in is expanding.  “Interstate 40 is going to be the boundary for these critters,” said Ed Davis wolf biologist for Arizona Game and Fish Department…Historically, the Mexican wolf’s range included portions of the southwestern U.S. and northern parts of Mexico…”Wolves cannot be released, trans-located or anything like that in the Coconino National Forest, so…if they disperse there, they can persist there,” Davis said.  “So if they roam into that area, we will nto be removing them back right now.”
