Wolf overseer surprised by high harvest

The Gazette | Posted: Monday, October 5, 2009 10:10 pm
Montana's inaugural wolf hunting season has been almost too successful in the Absaroka-Beartooth Wilderness.
Nine wolves have been killed by hunters in the area along the northern border of Yellowstone National Park, including four from the Cottonwood Pack, two of which were radio-collared as part of the park's wolf studies.

Court uses flawed data in wolf case

An official involved in wolf reintroduction since the program began says the recent federal court ruling blocking delisting is using data that doesn't reflect the greater Yellowstone ecosystem.

Doug Smith, leader of the Yellowstone Grey Wolf Restoration Project, says studies from Isle Royale used by environmentalists and Judge Donald Molloy reflect a specific wolf population, not wolves in general.

"I worked on the Isle Royale project and those wolves are an isolated population", Smith says "They are extremely inbred because they have no other options.".......

I've heard wolves in Yellowstone several times. Lots of examples on the internet:

Frankly, it doesn't sound like any wolf I've heard. I'm going to go with the Yeti option.

MT suspends wolf hunting near Yellowstone
Thursday, October 8, 2009 5:20 pm

Montana wildlife officials suspended wolf hunting near Yellowstone National Park after nine kills in just three weeks pushed the area's harvest close its season-long quota.

This is Montana's first wolf hunt following the animal's recent removal from the endangered species list. State officials hoped to use the hunt to curb wolf attacks on livestock. ......
