Inspector General’s office concludes investigation into Wolf Recovery Program

…The complaint was filled with numerous allegations but in particular focused on Jozwiak and her failing to properly document nuisance complaints about wolves. It also stated that she did not communicate effectively with Catron County residents in relationship to addressing public safety concerns involving the wolves. The complaint also said that Jozwiak mismanaged livestock depredation investigations and compensation, and had destroyed a wolf DNA sample. Mishandling a wolf bite incident involving a FWS volunteer was also among some of the complaints.
