The article focuses on the emergence of endangered Mexican gray wolf in the grasslands, mountains and streams of western New Mexico and eastern Arizona. The government's reintroduction rulebook states that a rancher cannot shoot a wolf simply because it threatens the livestocks however, the federal officers may kill or capture the wolf unless it kills three cows or sheep or other domestic animals in a single year. Allegedly, some ranchers said that environmentalists are using the wolf as a terrorist tactic to force ranchers off public lands they have controlled for decades.
