On December 1, Mexico released a family group of 11 Mexican gray wolves into the wild. This family originated from Wolf Haven and was moved to the Ladder Ranch in New Mexico while awaiting release into the wild. The breeding female was pregnant at the time of the transfer to Ladder and gave birth to six pups (the pair had already had a little of three pups the prior spring at Wolf Haven).

This release was the culmination of cooperative efforts of agencies (and their dedica ted staff) in both US and Mexico, as well as the staff at the Ladder Ranch. Wolf Haven staff accompanied the wolves to the release site and participated in "la liberaciĆ³n!" 

This is the 10th release event in Mexico and the largest release ever (both in the US and Mexico). CLICK HERE to watch a YouTube video of the family in the snow in their new country.
