Hunting to Resume After Wyoming Gains Authority Over Wolves

Licensed wolf hunting is set to resume in Wyoming for the first time since 2013 after the state won back the authority to manage the animals…The Wyoming Game and Fish Department has set a limit of 44 wolves for the hunt. "We don't set up a mortality quota necessarily expecting to meet it or thinking we need to meet it," said Ken Mills, the state's lead wolf biologist. "That's just what we've said is a sustainable number for the population and will leave us approximately where we want to be at the end of the year." Mills said the state wants to see 160 wolves remaining in the trophy game area after the hunt is over.
