Second Town Wolf Destroyed

Wolf

Life has returned to normal in the Indian Trails Subdivision on the south side of Jackson after the second of a pair of wolves was removed from the population when it failed to leave the area after its companion had been euthanized earlier. Wyoming’s US Fish and Wildlife Service Wolf Coordinator Mike Jimenez says the first of the two wolves, a white female, was trapped and destroyed during the third week in April. In doing so, Jimenez says it had been hoped that the second wolf would leave the area on its own. He says officials continued to monitor the second wolf for a week, but found it had continued the patterns it had followed before its companion was removed.  It was then the decision was made to remove the second wolf from the population as well.  Now, Jimenez says hopefully the action will resolve the problem and will lead to the wolves being in places where it is more appropriate.

  • Hunters must be conservationists first - October 20, 2014
    As hunters, it’s our responsibility to take care of the critters we hunt, as well as those we don’t. We have to obey the game laws. Police ourselves to be sure others respect the wildlife.
