The 1.5-year-old female wolf was captured in Arizona and temporarily has been in captivity awaiting release.

The wolf has no history of livestock depredation, but was trapped because it left the boundaries of the Blue Range Wolf Recovery Area.

This wolf is considered to be a good release candidate because it exhibits a fear of people, demonstrated by its behavior in captivity.

The New Mexico Department of Game and Fish and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will participate in the release.

Wipe it's paws? Once again the delusions of the Disney enducated bunny hugger comes to the fore. "Move it up into the montians" He's already there!! At no plcae in the Gila are wolves further than six miles from people. Wolves can cover forty miles a day and never even pant. The Mexican hybred wolf program is a farce. A costly farce at that. What killing has to stop? If ranchers wanted the wolf out of the Glia, they would all be gone in a month.

Beverly, stick with the Animal Planet, it's where you are safe.
