USFWS confirms the Mexican gray wolf will not be included in the status review

Last week I posted an email from the USFWS saying they were conducting a status review of the gray wolf under the Endangered Species Act.
Today, in response to an email from me, the USFWS said the Mexican gray wolf would not be a part of the review as they considered them "a separate subspecies."
Here is the email exchange:

It will not. We consider that a separate subspecies.
