New Wyoming Wolf Management Plan Proposes Killing Half of States’ Wolves

Wolves can’t seem to catch a break: Interior Secretary Ken Salazar and US Fish and Wildlife Service director Dan Ashe have “struck a deal” with Wyoming governor Matt Mead that will see the number of wolves in Wyoming reduced by half to just 100 individuals and 10 breeding pairs outside those in Yellowstone National Park. At the end of 2010 there were just 230 individual wolves in the state. The only good news in that is that the further negotiation and public extends to the fall.

Defenders of Wildlife is urging to call the Fish & Wildlife Service at 800-344-WILD (9453) to express your dissatisfaction with the new Wyoming wolf management plan.
