Endangered Wolf Shot by Camper

From Times Staff and Wire Reports

A camper shot and killed an endangered Mexican gray wolf released only weeks ago in far eastern Arizona as part of a federal recovery project, officials said. It was the first death among 11 wolves whose reintroduction earlier this year won praise from environmentalists but led to a loud outcry from ranchers, who said the wolves threatened their livelihood. Frosty Taylor, an Arizona Game and Fish Department spokeswoman, said the wolf was attacking a dog when it was shot.
