State to hold public hearing on Turner ranch wolves
By Chelo Rivera
ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – Ted Turner wants Game and
Fish to reverse its decision so he can raise Mexican gray wolves on his
ranch. The Ladder Ranch, private property owned by Turner, applied for
permits earlier this year, but the state denied the ranch’s request.
Game and state officials are now holding a public meeting in Roswell next month to hear the ranch’s appeal.
U.S. Fish and Wildlife recently bypassed the state agency to release
Mexican gray wolves in the Gila Wilderness sometime next year.
