Fewer lobos in the wild
Five packs had at least one living pup at the end of 2009, but only two packs had at least two surviving offspring. Those breeding pairs are the Hawk’s Nest and Paradise packs, with two pups each. Both those packs are in Arizona. Other packs with one pup each are the Bluestem and Rim packs in Arizona and the Middle Fork pack in New Mexico.
The breeding season for Mexican wolves in the wild is just beginning. We’re hoping that every wild pack will have puppies later this spring. We also hope that many more pups will survive this year.
