Montana Landowner Gives Up Wolf Permit

wolf hunt

The Gardiner, Montana area landowner who lost thirteen of his sheep to wolves late last month has asked Fish, Wildlife and Parks to amend his “shoot on site” permit which granted him permission to take a second wolf. The landowner says he will be shipping his cow/calf pairs which were grazing in the area of the depredation to summer pasture elsewhere at the end of the week. Meanwhile, his remaining sheep were moved immediately following the depredation event. Consequently, the landowner says there will no longer be a need for the permit. In response to the landowner’s request, the state has revised the “shoot on site” permit to expire on May 18th rather than June 8th in support of his good-faith gesture. State officials say the landowner had legally shot and killed a collared female on May 6th after it had returned to the site where the landowner’s sheep were killed. Fish Wildlife and Parks investigated claims that the landowner had baited the wolves and determined them to be false and that the wolf killed was likely one of the two animals responsible for the depredation event.
