Associated Press: Wildlife officials have confirmed the first gray wolf in northern Arizona in more than 70 years.
“We’ll let this wolf be a wolf where it’s at, and if it decides it’s going to move back north, it can do that. Or if somebody joins her, then that’s nature taking its course.”
– Jeff Humphrey, U.S. Fish and Wildlife spokesman
FLAGSTAFF, Ariz. — A female gray wolf from the Northern Rockies traveled hundreds of miles into northern Arizona, marking the species’ first appearance in the region in more than 70 years and the farthest journey south, wildlife officials confirmed Friday.
