Arizona Game and Fish to hold meetings on gray wolves

PHOENIX — The Arizona Game and Fish Department will hold informational
meetings this month on federal proposals regarding Mexican wolves.

It’s to share information with constituents on two proposed U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service rules dealing with Mexican wolf conservation.

The first federal rule proposes delisting the gray wolf from the federal list
of threatened and endangered species but maintaining endangered status.

The second federal rule proposes expansion of the geographic boundaries of the
Mexican Wolf Experimental Population Area in Arizona and New Mexico as well as
modification of a rule for managing the experimental population.

The public meetings are scheduled for Sept. 23 in Payson, Sept. 25 in Tucson
and Sept. 26 in Pinetop.

Public comments to the Fish and Wildlife Service on both proposed rules are due
by Oct. 28.
