New hunting regulation proposed for wolves in Wyoming


The Wyoming Game and Fish Department (WGFD) proposed a new gray wolf hunting regulation that will allow the killing of 58 wolves in 2018.

According to large carnivore biologist Ken Mills, the WGFD manages the wolf-hunting season based on efforts to maintain the same target population from year to year. The current target population outside of Yellowstone National Park and the Wind River Reservation is 100 animals and at least 10 breeding pairs. A breeding pair is defined as a male and a female that live in a pack and raises at least two pups in a season.
