Wolf Kills In Wyoming Conservative

Even as Wyoming continues to draw fire in the courtroom about its wolf hunting policy, Montana reports that 223 wolves were killed in the Treasure State during the season that ended last Thursday.  That compares with a total of 74 wolves killed since Wyoming took over managing the wolf population here last year – 68 of those during the 2012 hunting season and 6 killed as predators so far this year.  Environmental concerns oppose Wyoming’s wolf management plan saying the classification of the wolf as a predator in much of the state does not afford the species enough protection.  Montana Governor Steve Bullock and wildlife officials in that state, meanwhile say they believe they now have the right rules in place as Montana seeks to reduce predators there. Federal officials are continuing to monitor wolves in Idaho, Montana and Wyoming over five years to determine if endangered species protections should to be reinstated.
