Arizona officials support wolf alternative

The commission voted in favor of the alternative during a meeting Tuesday. It says the proposal was developed by 28 cooperating agencies and other stakeholders and will be submitted to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service for consideration.

The proposal would allow for up to triple the target number of Mexican wolves in the Southwest from the previous goal of 100. Supporters say that would help with developing a self-sustaining population.

The alterative also calls for a major expansion of the area where wolves can be released and expansion of the area where wolves can disperse and establish territories.

Commission Chairman J.W. Harris says the biggest impediment to wolf reintroduction is social tolerance.
