New Mexico Kids in Cages? Making International News

November 13, 2013

Recently, a NM animal rights supporter suggested on KOAT-TV that the recent media discovery of the fact that New Mexico children are having to be protected by cages from prowling wolves was a “gimmick” to garner sympathy.

In fact, this is an issue that people in western NM have been struggling with for years. But, the issue goes far beyond the terrorizing of ranching and farming families and their children.   Livestock eaten, maimed, terrorized; property damage, livelihoods destroyed.  There is a serious economic implications from the actions of the federal government’s decision to plant wolves in this area.

Wolves in Government Clothing is a film by filmmaker David Spady  that has played a major role in beginning to get the word out to the world about the impact on business, land and families of the planting of the wolf where it could not be sustained.  His film tells the tale without emotion.  Like Sargent Friday used to say “Just the facts, maam.  Just the facts.”  Below is a link to a Townhall.com article by the filmmaker.  Articles have also appeared in the Daily Mail out of the UK, the Los Angeles Times and several other major media outlets.  The people of New Mexico are finally getting a voice.
