The Montana FWP Commission approved a new regulation allowing landowners to kill wolves is they pose a “potential threat” . . .
The Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Commission last week approved a measure that would allow private landowners, even if they don’t hold a wolf license, to kill up to 100 wolves per year if they pose a “potential threat to human safety, livestock or domestic dogs.”
The wolf take is separate and in addition to any quota or general harvest associated with the wolf hunting and trapping season.
The commission also made few changes to the wolf season for next year, including reducing the wolf harvest in a management unit near Yellowstone National Park from the current quota of four to three.
How much impact the new regulation will have in Northwest Montana remains to be seen…
