Montanans debate annual wolf report

From American Hunter:

Montana’s annual wolf report set the stage for a heated debate at the state’s Environmental Quality Council, which provides oversight for several agencies, including the Department of Fish, Wildlife & Parks (FWP). The report showed that 248 wolves were harvested by hunters and trappers in 2022, well below the quota of 450 animals. Thirty five more animals were killed by the USDA’s Wildlife Services division for attacking livestock, with 10 more being killed by landowners for the same reason. This is also well below the 68-animal yearly average of depredation kills, calculated since 2002.
