ENDANGERED WOLVES-CATTLE KILLS
ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. _ Mexican gray wolves roaming parts of New Mexico and Arizona have been blamed for 88 livestock deaths in the first four months of the year. An Associated Press review has found that’s nearly as many as were confirmed for all of 2018. Some ranchers and rural residents expect things to get worse as the population of endangered predators grows.

ABORTION-BLUE STATE DIVIDE
PROVIDENCE, R.I. _ Not all states where Democrats dominate politically are rushing to protect abortion rights, even as several Republican-led states have taken aggressive steps to ban the procedure.

That has dismayed abortion-rights activists but reflects the diversity of views on abortion within the Democratic Party. By Jennifer McDermott and David A. Lieb. SENT: 1,400 words with photos.
