Montana FWP: Wolf population at 627

Montana’s verified wolf population remained stable last year while livestock depredations by wolves continued to decline, dropping about 27% from 2012.   A total of 627 wolves were counted in Montana at the end of 2013, compared to 625 last year…”Among the best news is that confirmed wolf depredations on livestock took a significant drop in 2013,” said FWP Director Jeff Hagener.  “And that comes on top of fewer overall agency control actions than the previous year.”
