625 wolves left in Montana, over 6000 permits to hunt them issued

…This year, the fee for a license to kill a wolf in the state of Montana was dropped to only $19.  Each hunter is allowed to kill up to five wolves, and the period in which they are hunted has been extended.  At the beginning of this year, there were only 625 wolves in Montana, a slight drop from the year before.  If only 2.1% of hunters issued a permit this year reach their bag limit, the wolf will disappear from Montana altogether.  As wolves are pack animals, a single hunter will likely be able to kill several wolves in a single trip.
