ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Environmentalists are filing another lawsuit over the federal government's handling of endangered Mexican gray wolves, this one seeking to stop a policy that calls for the capture of any wolves that cross the border into New Mexico and Arizona.

The Center for Biological Diversity Wednesday filed a formal notice of intent to sue the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service over a recent decision that the group says gives the agency authority to catch any wayward wolves and put them into a captive-breeding program, return them to where they came from or relocate them into a designated Mexican wolf recovery area.

The group says Mexico recently released nine Mexican gray wolves near the U.S. border in the Sierra Madre, and wolves from the northern Rocky Mountains could make their way south at any time.
