AM871, the packs alpha male lost a leg to a painful man made trap. The packs alpha female AF861 had to have her front leg amputated after being shot. Survival in the wild is difficult at best but under these conditions it is truly a challenge for these magnificent creatures. No animal should face this kind of brutality. The forces that seek to destroy the southwest's Lobos need to be called to account. With only 52 Mexican Gray Wolves left in the wild here in Arizona/New Mexico it is imperative that all of us who support these animals need to speak up and act now!
The best way to do this is to support Defenders of Wildlife's Defenders Action Fund or mexicanwolves.org. The three legged pack of New Mexico needs you now so that it may raise it's current family of four pups.
Please contact Defenders of Wildlife through this blog and be as generous as you possibly can so that we may insure the Mexican Gray Wolf has a future here in the southwest.
