Idaho wolf update
by Cat Urbigkit, Pinedale Online!
April 25, 2010

The Idaho Fish and Game Department reports:
"From September 1 through December 31, 2009, 135 wolves
were harvested legally. Hunters took 46 wolves between
January 1 and March 31, 2010 (Table 1).

"At the close of the hunting season on March 13, 188 wolves had been counted against the statewide harvest limit of 220 wolves; 181 were harvested legally, and an additional seven were either killed illegally during the season, were wounded but not recovered, or were accidentally killed as nontarget captures in snares legally set for bobcats or coyotes."

"USDA Wildlife Services confirmed wolves killed eight calves, injured one calf and probably killed another calf during March. In response to these and previous depredations, Wildlife Services killed 10 wolves." (See Table 2).
