More than 80 North Carolina Landowners Express Support for Recovery of Endangered Red Wolves

Via the Animal Welfare Institute:

Albemarle Peninsula, N.C.—Private landowners in the five counties of North Carolina where red wolves roam signed a petition, sent to U.S Fish and Wildlife Service director Dan Ashe, expressing their support for keeping endangered red wolves on their land.

The Service has identified local landowner support in the five-county area—Beaufort, Dare, Tyrrell, Hyde, and Washington counties—as a key component in its consideration of whether to continue the red wolf recovery program in North Carolina. In the past two years, the Service eliminated the recovery coordinator for the program, stopped reintroducing red wolves into the recovery area until it completes a review of the program, stopped sterilizing and removing coyotes (which hybridize with red wolves), and issued permits to landowners to kill individual red wolves.
