LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) – U.S. officials plan to release Mexican wolves in New Mexico this year despite the state’s opposition.

The Albuquerque Journal reports that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service on Monday posted a plan to its website saying it intends to release a pack of wolves in the state and place pups born in captivity into a wild pack to improve the population’s genetic diversity.
