Petition Against the Mexican Gray Wolf


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.

  • KERRY JUBB this has got to stop, its heartbreaking and we are going to loose an animal to distiction kubb

  • J. Hal Hopson,D.V. M. Stop the introduction of the Wolves!

  • Joan Bushong I am opposed to the reintroduction of the Mexican wolf or any wolves. Introducing major predators into productive sheep, goat and cattle areas will devastate the livestock, and wildlife industry, which is a major part of our economy all across our nation. Agriculture and private property rights must be protected. That is what free enterprise is all about!
