This brave and ambitious female gray wolf … had already become a symbol of what gray wolf recovery should look like: animals naturally dispersing to find suitable habitat. ~Eva Sargent, a director for Defenders of Wildlife.
Echo was protected as endangered
Hundred of miles from its Wyoming home, "914F", affectionately known as Echo, wandered to the rocky North Rim of the Grand Canyon last fall—the first gray wolf spotted there in 70 years, the Arizona Republic notes—before heading into Utah, likely searching for food or a mate. But in December, the wolf's journey came to an end after a hunter there mistook her for a coyote and shot her dead, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. (via Fox News)
Tell your member of Congress to protect the wolves. "Congressional efforts are now underway to delist wolves in Wyoming and across the Great Lakes, and it could be only a matter of time before legislation is introduced or amended to delist almost all gray wolves in the Lower 48 and bar protections for other critically imperiled species." ~Defenders of Wildlife
