U.S. District Judge William P. Johnson of Las Cruces sided with the state Department of Game and Fish, which objected last month after the federal agency released two 9-day-old wolf pups into the Gila National Forest. The state agency said wolves cannot be released in New Mexico unless it issues permits for them, an argument that Johnson accepted.

The state also asked that the wolf pups be removed from the wild, but Johnson denied that request.
