Demand the Forest Service cancel the permit for rancher who killed Mexican gray wolf
Wildlife advocates are demanding that the grazing permit of a New Mexico rancher be revoked after pleading guilty to trapping and killing a critically endangered young Mexican gray wolf with a shovel.
As a holder of a grazing permit on a Gila National Forest allotment, the rancher has received significant taxpayer money in livestock subsides from the federal government and we believe individuals who violate the Endangered Species Act should not be able to receive tax payer money.
United States Forest Service (USFS) Gila National Forest District Ranger Emily Irwin has the authority to cancel the permit if the permit holder has been convicted for failing to comply with Federal laws and regulations that relate to the protection of fish and wildlife.
Please take action and demand that USFS revoke this rancher’s grazing permit for this cruel act of killing an endangered Mexican gray wolf!
