Wyoming Wildlife Officials Begin Trapping Wolves

Wolf KillWildlife officials monitoring gray wolf populations will be capturing the animals in parts of northwestern Wyoming.

The Casper Star-Tribune reports the wolves will be immobilized, processed and released on site and monitored. All areas where the trapping will be taking place will be marked with warning signs.

Information gained from the trapping will be used to assess the wolf populations in Wyoming and to direct wolf management.

In April, Gov. Matt Mead released a report prepared by the Wyoming Game and Fish Department that said there were at least 306 wolves in at least 43 packs — including more than 23 breeding pairs — in Wyoming at the end of 2013.

Of that total, at least 95 wolves in at least 11 packs were in Yellowstone National Park.
