Bill would limit Arizona’s authority over Mexican gray wolves

8 min read

The Arizona Residence has handed a monthly bill that would strip point out wildlife officers of the authority to stop the killing of Mexican grey wolves in specified conditions. The monthly bill is now in the Senate, wherever conservation companies say its potential customers are great.

Property Bill 2181 bars the state Match and Fish Fee from prohibiting a human being from killing a wolf if the person feels threatened or if their livestock or pets are threatened. The bill doesn’t explicitly say that only the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Company, the federal wildlife management company, can established regulations for killing Mexican wolves, but that would be the outcome if it became legislation.

Rep. David Cook, R-World, who authored the invoice, mentioned he needs ranchers to have additional autonomy and would like the condition to comply with federal rules.
