Road Kill Wolf - Hopefully the girl released fares better

The Forest Lake Press reports that three endangered Mexican gray wolves were released from the Wildlife Science Center last night.

Wildlife Science Center Director Peggy Callahan said two of the wolves were found on shelter grounds following the overnight incident, but one animal found its way into the adjoining Carlos Avery Wildlife Management Area. The female wolf was tracked to an area east of Coon Lake but the trail was lost in an neighborhood near Interlachen Drive.

Callahan said she suspects the break-in was an organized effort to release the animals.

Not only did these morons “free” captive-raised animals who probably can’t survive on their own, they released them from a facility that has been recognized for its efforts to save this very species. A group that has itself released 59 Mexican gray wolves into appropriate wild environments (which, by the way, do not  include Minnesota) in the last twelve years.

The Mexican gray wolves are native to the American southwest and are part of a federal government reintroduction program. The Wildlife Science Center houses the Mexican Grey wolves for study along with a variety of other wolves and other species including bears, cougars, lynx and fox.

Callahan said someone used a pry bar to force open the center’s perimeter gate off Broadway Avenue and then pried open a wolf enclosure releasing the three wolves.

With a bit of luck the remaining wolf will be caught and returned to the center before she becomes roadkill or starves to death. And the clueless twits who released her will be found and prosecuted.

    Too bad that the sentence the AR farktards deserve is far and away from what the Eighth Amendment allows. That goes for ALL of them, not just these nutjobs. I always like to say that there’s a special circle in hell for anyone who abuses an animal (I use the term “abuse” for what it really is, not what people like to think it is). No doubt the AR agenda have their own private area waiting for them too.

    Mexican wolves are in a lot of trouble.

    That particular subspecies has very low genetic diversity.

    One particular line of these wolves was killed off because it was believed that these wolves were part dog. However, these wolves have been bred in captivity for so long that it is possible that they were developing dog traits after generations of breeding in captivity and not selecting for any wild traits whatsoever.

    Don’t tar the entire movement by the few ill thought out actions of a few.
