We just learned that four Mexican gray wolves were found caught in traps. One wolf, a female – possibly a mom – died after she was removed from the trap. Another, a young male, had his leg so severely injured it had to be amputated. Yet another had two legs caught in two separate traps.
It's hard to know how long they were trapped there, struggling to escape, dying of thirst or hunger or exposure. And it's heartbreaking to think how many more wolves could suffer this same fate if we don't put a stop to this.
With your help, Defenders is on the ground in Arizona and New Mexico working at the state level, pushing for better wildlife policies in Washington D.C. and advocating to protect these animals in court.
