Montana wolf expert takes on challenge

Kent Laudon jumped out of the frying pan and into the fire.  Laudon, one of the top wolf biologists in the northern Rocky Mountains, left his position in Kalispell last spring for Alpine, Ariz., where he is leading wolf-recovery efforts in Arizona and New Mexico…The population in the New Mexico and Arizona recovery area has about 110 wolves, all from the same lineage. “It’s like 110 cousins running around,” Laudon said…”We can’t really have a delay,” he said, “We may not be able to get enough good genetics fast enough.”
