From the Helena Independent Record in Montana:
Montana Gov. Greg Gianforte said he should have known about a state-mandated certification class before trapping a wolf near Gardiner last month, an action for which he received a written warning.
Mountain West News Bureau first reported Monday that Gianforte trapped a wolf on Feb. 15 and received a written warning from game wardens for doing so without first completing a required certification course. Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks told the bureau that wardens have discretion in issuing citations or warnings, and typically used warnings as a means of education.
