ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service killed a Mexican gray wolf following a series of cattle deaths near the New Mexico-Arizona border.


It’s the first time in a decade that federal authorities have had to put down a wolf in order to stop attacks on livestock.

The White Mountain Apache Tribe called for the feds to take action after four calves were killed by the wolf this summer.
