Study: States And NPS Need To Reach Cooperative Goals On Wolves
From National Parks Traveler
Squeezed hard against the northern boundary of Yellowstone National Park by a handful of the park’s other wolf packs, the Phantom Lake pack naturally would head north into Montana on its hunts, but last winter the predators loped into a death trap.
Hunters anxious to add a gray wolf to their trophy list killed roughly half of the pack’s 13 members, including what was believed to be the lead, or alpha, female, which often is the “glue” that holds a pack together.
