This is sad. We are at a time when the economy is very low. Yet the government can continue to pump money into this wolf program that is only putting ranchers out of business and home. The wolf was extinct from the area for a reason. a predator of that nature is just not meant to be around anymore. they cause alot of damage and do no good. Thanx for the facts Mr. Griffin and Mr. Carey.

I am sure Mr Rubel who lives in a nice air conditioned home with city water and sewer services knows much more about you "cowboys" in treating the very land you live on.......

Once again politicians sponging money off the very people who provide their existence.

Apparently the "editor" had to add his opinion by CHANGING the TITLE of the article from; 'Living with Mexican Wolves and the Liberal Press to; TWO CENTS: MEXICAN WOLVES AND THE LIBERAL PRESS.

This just proves the point of the position of the press and shows how biased they are.....very sad they cannot condone the truth and facts to the public....

I see someone removed the other post om the legacy of Aldo Leopold,the author I imagine.Can't say I blame him as he was misinformed and extremely biased.It sure does bother some people when their Walt Disney fantasy world comes tumbling down due to the truth of reality.People are not as ignorant as they think or wish them to be,especially on subjects that are near and dear to their hearts.If,he were a journalist of some grit,he would go back ,research both sides of the issue,present the facts,and allow his respected readers to draw their own conclusions.Or,he could just make a retraction and admit he was wrong,then he would be a man.

I am familiar with the plight of Mr. Carey and the citizens of Catron County.He is presenting documented facts,no more,no less.I have come to believe the Mexican Wolf Program was an attempt to establish a wolf eco-tourism industry on the Arizona-New Mexico border,similar to Yellowstone,where their program has had historic success.Big Bend and Old Mexico Would have been a more logical location for this program,since circumstances are very similar to Yellowstone and if this program was truly about wolf recovery.I also feel this location,Catron County, was chosen as retribution its past conflicts with the Federal Government.What better tool than the Endangered Species Act?I feel the time has come for a Congressional Investigation of this floundering program at taxpayer expense.I hope Congressman Pearce takes notice and will do all the citizens of New Mexico a great service by leading such an investigation and shedding some much needed light on this failed program.Our best and brightest are not at work here for us or the wolves.Com mon sense is now needed to decide what is best for taxpayers and Mexican Gray Wolves.

Let's call,mail,or E-mail Congressman Steve Pearce to impress upon him the need for a Congressional Investigation into the failed Mexican Wolf Program.This plague on the citizens of New Mexico and the taxpayers of the United States has gone on long enough.USFWS will never admit failure even though its' assessment of the program says it is mired in it.Now is the time to strike,while the iron is hot.

Congratulations to the New Mexico Game Commission for taking the second giant step in the direction of common sense wildlife management,when they lifted the Gila trapping ban and left the trapping regulations as they were in the Hunting Booklet,except for a minor change concerning distance of a set from campgrounds.Thank you,Gentlemen!Job well done!
