Indiscriminate traps kill, injure endangered Mexican wolves, impeding recovery



Four endangered Mexican wolves caught in traps in New Mexico

ALBUQUERQUE – Defenders of Wildlife has learned that four more Mexican gray wolves were trapped in New Mexico on land managed by the U.S. Forest Service over the last two months. The four endangered wolves included a breeding-age female that died and a male that was taken into captivity only to have his injured leg amputated. These two wolves are from the Prieto Pack.

According to USFWS information, at least 42 Mexican gray wolves have been caught in traps since 2003, just four in Arizona and the remainder all in New Mexico. At last count in January 2017, [ONLY] 114 Mexican gray wolves roamed the wild in Arizona and New Mexico. Those wolves are the result of a reintroduction program that began in 1998 with the releases of family groups of well-bonded male and female pairs and their pups.

2. Cougars don't have a voice to defend accusations of POSSIBLY killing a goat.

Eastern puma declared extinct in United States, here's why
Thursday, January 25, 2018, 7:21 PM -

The eastern puma has been declared extinct by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

It's been 80 years since the last confirmed sighting of this species. Therefore, the agency has removed the eastern puma from the Federal List of Endangered and Threatened Wildlife.

What a terrible loss for our planet. The “ghost cat.”...U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service officially declared the eastern cougar (Puma concolor couguar) to be extinct and removed it from the endangered species list.

The man told investigators he choked the lion, and an examination of the animal confirmed that, said Rebecca Ferrell, a spokeswoman for Colorado Parks and Wildlife.

The lion was less than a year old and tested negative for rabies.

Mountain lions rarely attack because they tend to avoid people. The animals have killed fewer than 20 people in North America in more than 100 years.

4. Trump attitude on other endangered species

Photographs show Donald Trump's sons, Donald Jr. and Eric, posing during a big game hunting trip.



Big game hunting

In 2010, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) criticized Trump, a big game hunter, for an African hunting trip he took with Donald Trump Jr., his older brother. PETA condemned the pair after photos showed the brothers on an organized safari in Zimbabwe, where their hunting targets included elephants and leopards. The director general of the Zimbabwe Parks and Wildlife Management Authority, V. Chandenga, issued an official response supporting the brothers and calling any allegations of illegality "baseless" and "false". Both brothers defended their safari via Twitter, affirming their actions as hunters and longtime advocates of the outdoors. Donald Trump also addressed the controversy, saying on TMZ that he fully supported his sons' actions.

Trump sons' hunting in focus as US lifts import ban on African elephant trophies

Obama administration imposed ban because of conservation concerns
Donald Trump Jr and Eric Trump are enthusiastic big game hunters


The Trump administration’s decision to loosen restrictions around the import of elephant trophies from Zimbabwe and Zambia has turned attention back to the president’s family’s own connection to the controversial sport.

Donald Trump Jr and Eric Trump are prolific big-game hunters and during the 2016 campaign, images re-emerged of the pair on a 2011 hunting trip posing with animals they had killed on safari, including an elephant, a buffalo and a leopard.

In June 2017, Forbes reported that the Eric Trump Foundation shifted money intended to go to cancer patients to the family's businesses. Eric Trump had asserted that his foundation got to use Trump Organization assets for free "We get to use our assets 100% free of charge," but that appears not to be the case. According to Forbes, more than $1.2 million of the donations went to the Trump Organization for the use of Trump's Westchester golf course and that "Golf charity experts say the listed expenses defy any reasonable cost justification for a one-day golf tournament.
