Socorro commission bans local wolf releases

The Socorro County Commission voted unanimously to ban the release of wolves in their area. The meeting was packed, and several people were pleased with the decision. Those opposed to the wolves release said they feared for the safety of their children and livestock. One woman said she lost $18,000 worth of livestock due to wolf attacks. Others were unhappy with the decision and said the committee had no right to override federal law.  KOAT-TV
