So sad - and you can't tell me the hunters couldn't have simply chosen not to kill them. If they were after elk there was no reason to shoot the wolves :-(

They killed because they could.
Whether legally or due to having agun to shoot across the distance.

Yes, they saw the radio collars.

Permitting the hunt in this locale irresponsibly wasted taxpayer funds
