Idaho wolf killings up to 570 over past year

From Big Country News Connection:


BOISE — Over the past year, more wolves were killed in Idaho than in any other year since at least 2013.

From July 1, 2019, to June 30, 570 wolves were killed by hunters, vehicles, traps and other causes, according to data from the Idaho Department of Fish and Game.

Most of the wolves were killed by trappers and hunters. The Fish and Game Commission earlier this year extended the wolf-trapping and hunting seasons and increased the number of tags a hunter or trapper could buy.
