Wyo. Wolf Count Wrapping Up

JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming wildlife officers are wrapping up their annual wolf count, saying they expect the totals to be about 170 wolves and 15 breeding pairs.

The Associated Press reported those totals would be well above the state’s goal of 100 individuals and 10 breeding pairs.

The goal also includes 50 other wolves and five breeding pairs inside Yellowstone National Park. Park researchers say they’re still formulating their estimates.

The state’s first regulated hunting season for wolves ended about five weeks ago.

Officials say some of the wolves killed in the hunt had radio or GPS collars that researchers used to track individual animals and packs.

Researchers say losing those wolves makes it harder to track population numbers as well as movements.
