Montana Commission Expands Trophy Hunting for Wolves

One hunter could kill five in new, longer season
The Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Commission approved an unjustified and devastating proposal to expand trophy hunting of Montana’s wolves. Each hunter could kill up to five wolves – compared to three in the previous year – and the season expanded to cover September 15 to March 15, putting pregnant wolves in jeopardy.

Wendy Hergenraeder, Montana state director for The Humane Society of the United States said: “We are extremely disappointed that the Commission has furthered its hostile assault on Montana’s wolves. After the devastating effects the 2012 hunting season had on the population – especially to Yellowstone Park’s wolf packs – our Fish, Wildlife and Parks Commission should be working to protect the fragile population, not adopting the same aggressive measures that put wolves on the endangered species list in the first place.”

Hunters will have a longer season this year to pursue wolves and will be able to take more wolves compared to last year.

 

Montana’s general rifle season for wolves opens Sunday and runs through March 15. This year’s season is about a month and a half longer than last year’s. The archery season for wolves opened Sept. 7 and goes through Saturday. Trapping will begin Dec. 15 and run through Feb. 28.

I hope this comes over alright.  Please read for the Wolves.
