FWP accepts donation from elk group for wolf management in Montana

Published

on

HELENA – Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks has accepted $51,000 from the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation for the state’s wolf management efforts.

The funding will be paid directly to Wildlife Services, the federal agency contracted by FWP to resolve wolf conflicts associated with livestock depredation. Wildlife Services also assists in monitoring wolf populations by placing radio collars in as many wolf packs as possible.

The money will be used for radio collaring wolves in packs that aren’t currently monitored, removing individual problem wolves as authorized by FWP, and improving science-based management of wolf populations overall, according to a press release from RMEF.

Montana’s big-game hunters didn’t meet the state agency’s wolf harvest quotas last season.
