The Mexican Wolf

A Quick History

The Mexican Wolf is a subspecies of the gray wolf. It eats Deer and Elk but because there is less prey than there used to be, they are dying out. So, the Mexican Wolf had to find another food source. They started eating farmer’s cattle!

The government decided something should be done about it, so they started killing off the wolves. Now, the Wolves are marked as critically endangered on the conservation status.
