British Columbia Government culls 94 wolves in West Chilcotin caribou habitat

From The Williams Lake Tribune in British Columbia, Canada:

A total of 94 wolves were removed as part of a predator reduction program to support the recovery of the Itcha-Ilgachuz caribou herd in the West Chilcotin.

This past winter’s wolf removal achieved the target of less than three wolves for every 1,000 square kilometres, which is the target that the federal caribou recovery strategy identified as necessary to achieve a positive response in re-building the caribou population, confirmed a spokesperson for the Ministry of Forests, Lands and Natural Resource Operations and Rural Development.
