Reward Offered For Information Leading to Conviction of Killer in Mexican Gray Wolf Death

On October 8, 2022, another endangered Mexican gray wolf was found illegally killed in southwestern New Mexico. Grenville was the father of the Seco Creek Pack, and one of the most genetically valuable wolves in the wild. Killing a Mexican wolf violates the Endangered Species Act and the NM Wildlife Conservation Act and is subject to civil and criminal penalties. This case is under law enforcement investigation. New Mexico Wild and several other advocacy groups have contributed to a combined $37,000 reward for information leading to the conviction of the killer(s) of the Mexican gray wolf.

If you have any information on this killing, please call:

USFWS – (505) 346-7828
NMDG&F – (800) 432-4263

In 2015, New Mexico Wild joined with other conservation groups and sued the U.S. Department of Justice for failing to prosecute wolf killers. Now, our organization is again standing up to say that wolves belong by hiring the Western Environmental Law Center to file a lawsuit against the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for its failure to adopt an adequate management rule for recovering the critically endangered population of Mexican gray wolves as required by the Endangered Species Act.
