This banner, from Center For Biological Diversity, pretty much says it all…although I think the Northern Rockies estimate is too high, Nobody really knows how many wolves reside in Idaho, Montana or Wyoming. Jay Mallonee, Montana wolf biologist, believes Montana FWP’s data on wolf numbers is seriously flawed. AND the chart doesn’t take into account the number of wolves who died in Montana and Idaho in 2009/2010. Over 500 wolves perished in the wolf hunt, Wildlife Services killings, 10j, poaching and general mortality…which would raise the total of dead wolves to over 2000, not including the ongoing wolf hunts taking place now, Wildlife Services slaughter and continued poaching of these beleaguered animals.
The Obama administration has been the worst thing for wolves since their first extermination in the lower 48. He and his cronies have undone the hard-won progress made to bring wolves back from the brink!
