Citizen Board Reconvened Re. Wolves

Wolf

A disbanded 12-member citizens’ council is being reconvened to meet in Montana and discuss that state’s wolf management plan.  The Montana Wolf Management Advisory Council last met about five years ago, in anticipation of the wolf’s official recovery in the northern Rocky Mountains, in order to discuss specific hunting and trapping recommendations which then provided the backbone of the state’s wolf management plan. The core of the agenda for their meeting this month includes an update on existing federal requirements; a review of the legal procedures that led to delisting in 2011; and reviews and updates on the wolf population’s status, research activities, hunting and trapping seasons, livestock depredation, recent wolf-related legislation, and wolf-program funding. Montana wildlife officials recently estimated that at least 625 wolves, in 147 verified packs, and 37 breeding pairs inhabited the state at the end of 2012.
