State Prepares For Wolf Management

The Wyoming Game and Fish Department has begun monitoring wolf populations by capturing and radio-collaring wolves in areas of Wyoming where wolves are designated as trophy game animals.  That area includes Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks and much of Teton County.  Game and Fish Large Carnivore Section Supervisor Mark Bruscino says the department hopes to gain valuable and needed information from radio-collared wolves so that it can better monitor the wolf population size and distribution in the state. Wyoming must maintain at least 100 individual wolves and ten breeding pairs on lands outside of Yellowstone National Park and the Wind River Reservation in order to maintain a recovered wolf population and keep the wolf off of the Endangered Species List. Bruscino says the radio collars will allow biologists to more readily locate wolf packs, count adults and pups, and more accurately estimate the number and location of wolf packs in Wyoming.
