In the News: Two Mexican gray wolves, one in NM, have died

PHOENIX — Arizona wildlife officials say two endangered Mexican gray wolves, including one in New Mexico, have died.

The Arizona Game and Fish Department said in a news release Friday that both animals were found dead in August, bringing the total number of documented deaths to eight. Authorities did not release any details about the circumstances or where exactly the wolves were found.

Their deaths are under investigation.

The wolf in Arizona was part of a pack in the eastern part of the Fort Apache Indian Reservation.

The one found dead in New Mexico was part of a pack based in Arizona’s Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest.

Efforts to reintroduce the endangered wolves in Arizona and New Mexico have been ongoing for two decades.
