¡Muy bien, Mexico, y felicidades!
A consortium of Mexican conservation groups released Mexican wolves into the wilds of Sonoran last week. This was one of the primary goals of Mexico's President during his tenure. Mission accomplished! Hurray!
Mexican authorities released five Mexican wolves in the San Luis Mountains in Sonora, Mexico, on Oct. 12, 2011, approximately 80 miles south of Douglas, Ariz.This really is awesome news, especially with such mixed success in the U.S. recovery effort.
Mexico’s desire to release wolves in Sonora as part of its recovery effort has been known for the past two years, although the exact timetable for release was unknown. (Via)
So, Suck it, Arizona Game and Fish Department. Try as you might, MEXICO IS A SOVEREIGN NATION! Ha! We're really glad that acts of intentional sabotage from a certain retiring Anti- Environmental Species Conspirator didn't stop this conservation success.
