Illegal activity blamed for death of two wolves

By QCS Staff

Nine Mexican wolves have died in the wild since the beginning of 2008. Foul play was responsible for three of the deaths, according to a release from the the U.S.Fish and Wildlife Service.

Necropsy results from the service’s wildlife forensic laboratory are still pending for one wolf, the release said.

Female wolves known as AF1111, AF1112 and AF1113 were illegally shot.
