Two six-month-old Mexican gray wolf pups are navigating southwestern New Mexico's Gila forest on their own now that their troubled pack has splintered, worrying environmentalists who think the animals' chances of survival are slim.

When will we human being just STOP interfering with everything, what gives us the right to remove the cubs mother and leave them to starve slowly to death? Wait a minute, perhaps that's the idea in the first instance, just saves the management the job of killing the cubs themselves and looking like the bad guys. They can now say that they have not survived the winter, blah blah blah......and their hands will not be soiled with even more wolves deaths, not that they have a conscience to worry with anyway.

Can we please disband the Fish and Wildlife Services branch of the gov't? They are f**king useless 60% of the time and are downright dangerous to animals and the environment the remaining 40%. They are supported with our tax dollars. We should have a say in whether they are doing their jobs or making matters worse than they would be if they simply didn't exist.

This story is horrible. Those poor animals have been given a death sentence and apparently no one in the Obama administration gives a damn. Four more years of this crap and we'll be lucky if the US has any wild animals left.

Poor babies. They should have never the captured the mother. These wildlife so-called experts are complete assholes. I hope the pups make it.

I think the Fish and Wildlife dept. name should be changed to corporate interests or ranchers unite. They certainly do not appear to be interested in protecting wildlife.

100% behind that, Wildlife services needs to be Pulled, eliminated, and everyone charged with extreme animal cruelty charges... I was part of that, and always stood for the animals. So, considered an insider, because I worked with HsUS and they are with me and all the lawsuits we have filed across the USA. We have many filed and now MANY orgs are adding on and branching out adding me, we all banding together, these lawsuits are starting to roll in...Dec 20th.. is the 1st, the Wyoming and on my sced. alone I have 27 upcoming

I resigned Jan 26th.. and going to stand in front with files and files of mistreatment. I don't mistreat animals ever. Never needed to.. I was appalled to find out how rampant it was within this system and now they messed the lawmakers up and making poaching and trapping legal and killing off the wolves in a world wide extermination.... its pathetic

There's no place for wildlife in a world gone mad with greed and corruption and unregulated free trade. If the new TPP passes, we ain't seen nothing yet. Sadly noted.

We execute a mother for feeding her babies! There are few of them and many cattle. This is so sad and so wrong. Why does our country support hunters and cattlemen and execute wild animals? I'm ashamed of this.

Couldn't get the article to come up. Hope the pups will be safe and reproduce and humans will leave them alone. Wish that the mother could be sent back to the pups. I know she is at a sanctuary in Arizona.
