Petition Against the Mexican Gray Wolf

926 Signatures Goal: 5,000


Newborn horse colt killed by Luna pack Mexican wolves. One of many depredations ignored by FWS.


The Mexican wolf is a non-native, hybrid captive bred animal. The population has shown increased habituation behavior and does not have the natural wariness of man that wildlife naturally posses.


Due to its listing as a species of gray wolf under the 10 J section of the Endangered Species act, we do not believe this wolf is still considered endangered under the the Endangered Species Act we believe it is technically subject to control measures authorized under the 10J rule. Control measures that the US Fish and Wildlife service have chosen to cease implementing.


These animals have been released and remain un-managed in clear violation of the 10J and the 1998 final rule for the sole purpose of implementing societal change which is illegal under the Endangered Species Act.


Our task and purpose as rural Americans is to expose the Mexican wolf recovery agenda
for what it is and in addition, ensure that problem wolves are subject to the proper wildlife management to ensure the health safety and well being of the citizens of the rural Southwest.


We the undersigned, insist that ranchers and others impacted by wolf damage be compensated for property loss attributed to wolves.


We the undersigned, demand that the United States Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) cease further releases of the Mexican gray wolf into New Mexico and Arizona and consider no plans to release these animals into Texas, Utah, and Colorado.


We the undersigned demand that wolves that are in the presence of rural children, or are defined under the 1998 10J Rule as problem wolves be removed or lethally controlled.
We the undersigned insist that the 98 Mexican wolf final Rule criteria are upheld to the fullest extent possible in order to protect ranchers and other involved parties from the damage these wolves have and continue to cause. This effort includes our support for permanent or lethal removal of livestock depredating wolves in accordance with the 1998 final Rule.


Should the wolf population fail to flourish under these legal requirements, We demand the program be terminated as required by the 1998 10-J rule. The Endangered Species Act requires only implementing programs that are practicable not those that continually damage small rural communities and fail year after year to sustain themselves.

    Need wolf population control & rewrite ESA for this protections original purpose. Representatives please support HR2910 introduced by Representatives Steve Pearce and Paul Gossar, the Mexican Wolf Transparency and Accountability Act would help ranchers by removing ESA protection and terminating all federal recovery efforts for the Mexican gray wolf in Arizona and New Mexico. Protect our state's ranchers and rural communities from economic losses stemming from the reintroduction of Mexican gray wolves by supporting this bill!

    I am firmly against the reintroduction of any predators in New Mexico and surrounding states, particularly wolves.

    The West of the U.S. is a magnificent place--people come from all over the world and are in awe of the beauty of the West. Ranching, rodeos, are a national heritage, it is a living art heritage. It must be preserved and not thrown to the wolves, the four legged as well as the two legged.
    Thank you for taking the time to set up this petition.
