"She is the most famous wolf in the world," Jimmy Jones, a wildlife photographer,once told the New York Times. In fact, she was so popular that she was referred to as a "rock star" by rangers at Yellowstone National Park. Now she is dead.

Note: at present, the National Park Service estimates, that were close to 1,700 wolves living in the Rocky Mountain region (most in Idaho), with approximately 98 wolves in 10 packs, plus two loners living in Yellowstone at the end of 2011.

Dear Mary,

You spoke, and the State of Montana listened.

Yesterday, the Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks Commission took a positive step forward in the state's management of wolves by closing a unit adjacent to Yellowstone National Park to hunting and trapping for the rest of this season. Read more here.

This adjustment in Montana’s hunting and trapping season will limit mortality of wolves that move north across Yellowstone National Park's boundary. As you know, GYC asked for a wolf trapping closure on a broader geography, but agree that this is a timely compromise.

As America's Voice for Yellowstone, we will continue to monitor wolf populations in the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem and ensure that Montana, Idaho and Wyoming aren't reaching their quotas on the backs of Yellowstone wolves. We will also continue to meet regularly with state wildlife agencies to improve their plans. And, we will ensure wolves have a sustainable future here in Greater Yellowstone.

Your voice is a necessary player in wolf advocacy. Thank you for making a difference in our latest efforts. We will call on you again when needed in the future.

For Yellowstone,

Mike Clark
Executive Director

P.S. Your support makes all the difference. For more on this story and our wolf conservation efforts, click here.

Thanks Dianne this is an email I just got a couple of hours ago.

Do you know, the more you know about the story of this wolf. The worse it becomes? I want to write a book about the Wyoming Tale so bad. I can speak, We all can speak, volumes for the Yellowstone Wolves. And, It's hitting me so personal, this female alpha was looking for her mate. She was never without him. For 6 years. Almost Like SaraSheena and Delphi. This is 2 Packs in 4 months that have had similar things happen to them. For no real purpose. I started in the wolf recovery project in 1994 with Wyoming while I was living in Wellington Colo. I traveled into Yellowstone so many times in my life, I think it could have driven it with my eyes closed. I rode on my horse PJ and packed mules in there. Those memories are blasted and washed away because now everything they stood for all got betrayed. Everyone who worked for USA is now see'ing it all getting shot up and trapped and destroyed by greed. And look at these amazing Mates, Looking for their Beloved Others. They Mate for LIFE! this is killing me as it is killing them. I can't stand see'ing them die anymore. When mine died. I died too

knowing that wolves mate for life, and this poor female alpha is gone, her mate will never know what happened to her, and will be lonely for the rest of HIS life. i am choking on tears, and more livid than i can express. there must be something more we can do to protect our wolves. i will do anything it takes to help in this cause. signed.
