Wyoming Wildlife Official Says Wolves Unlikely to Thrive Outside State's Northwestern Corner

After nearly two decades since their reintroduction in Yellowstone National Park, population trends show that gray wolves are unlikely to thrive in sections of Wyoming outside the northwestern corner of the state.

Trophy game, I would say people are stupid but, that's just redundant.

trophy kills are just ridiculous. Idiots everyone of them to be proud of their cowardly acts

The larger the wolf packs, the more animals that will be killed. Sad, but true.

Yes, especially in Wyoming it is rampant, very shameful and sad story. Reminder: when you do your daily clicks to donate, click MULTIPLE TIMES on the wolf cause! Thx Cher!

Noted. The gentleman said that wolves are easy to manage and that there is a variety of options for them. The rest is a real mixed bag, though. Seems that we have two major issues: growing human population that isn't allowing room for our animals and humans who insist on kiiling them.

Typical of the type of people who hold these offices that are to protect our animals. We need to get them out of office. Only 4% of the population are hunters. Hunting needs to be banned. The psychological profile of serial killers is consistent with the characteristic traits of hunters . . . . why would any state promote this type of behavior? We need to go after the states that allow wolves to be hunted and refuse to give them any Federal money until they repay the tax payers for the money we spent to bring the wolf back from extinction.

Dianne D. is absolutely right; 95% of the American population are not hunters so why are we catering to them? They always say that they are the ones to get conservation areas protected and that's true but only so they have a place to kill innocent wildlife. Most of the state wildlife boards are filled with hunters and ranchers not biologists so this is the standard response, more hunting, yes, that will fix everything. I think hunters have size issues and they need to kill to make themselves feel more powerful and manly. This goes for female hunters too. Anyone who enjoys killing innocent animals is sick and needs physiological help.

Well; if those f**king people would stop shooting them, maybe they would have half a chance. Morons.

Too bad humans, also considered predators, when hunting for no reason other than to kill something, cannot be killed on sight. Obviously, wolves aren't trained to stay within the boundaries of Yellowstone, so human predators can kill them without consequence. How sad and terribly unfortunate.
