PHOENIX -- The Arizona Game and Fish Department will hold informational meetings this month on federal proposals regarding Mexican wolves.

It's to share information with constituents on two proposed U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service rules dealing with Mexican wolf conservation.

The first federal rule proposes delisting the gray wolf from the federal list of threatened and endangered species but maintaining endangered status.

The second federal rule proposes expansion of the geographic boundaries of the Mexican Wolf Experimental Population Area in Arizona and New Mexico as well as modification of a rule for managing the experimental population.

The public meetings are scheduled for Sept. 23 in Payson, Sept. 25 in Tucson and Sept. 26 in Pinetop.

Public comments to the Fish and Wildlife Service on both proposed rules are due by Oct. 28.
