The article focuses on impediments to effective implementation of the wolf recovery program in Southwest U.S. In the spring of 2006, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service inadvertently killed most of the members of the Hon Dah pack from reservation lands in eastern Arizona. In April, the White Mountain Apache Tribe requested the agency to remove the pack from reservation lands after it killed at least seven cattle during 2005. However, in the course of the program, ten of the wolves were killed, leaving only two members of the pack. The pack was considered good ambassadors for the program before the recent incidence of cattle killings.
