Catron County has issue with Mexican gray wolves
By Yasmin Pinon
Las Cruces, NM – The United States Fish and Wildlife Service is trying to reintroduce the Mexican gray wolf, in the Southwestern U.S. after years of being on the endangered species list. Since their reintroduction to the wild, residents of Catron County, New Mexico, have been experiencing more wolf encounters. As KRWG's Yasmin Pinon reports, some cattle ranchers in the Northern New Mexico County say the endangered animal is bad for business, and they have a right to protect their investment.
