Correction to Feb. 27 story on Mexican gray wolves

EDS: Clients who used a Cronkite News story slugged BC-CNS-Wolf Count that moved Tuesday, Feb. 27, under an ALPINE dateline, are asked to use the following correction. The errors occurred in the 18th and 20th grafs of the original. A corrected version of the story has been posted here.

ALPINE – A Feb. 28 story on the Mexican gray wolf count incorrectly stated the number of wolves officials sought to establish in the 1982 plan. That plan did not list criteria for delisting or downlisting the wolf from an endangered species to threatened species. The story also incorrectly identified one of the prime habitat areas. The areas include two in the Southern Rockies of Colorado, Utah and northern Arizona, and one in eastern Arizona and northern New Mexico. The article incorrectly explained the criteria for downlisting the wolf in the November plan. The latest revision calls for downlisting if the population in the U.S. reaches 320 wolves and Mexico reaches 200.
