There’s is going to be some blood… On the hunters’ side. Indeed, in Montana, there is a 1:10 (wolf : hunter) ratio and 6.000 want to shoot at least one.
Would you pay $19 to kill a wolf? In Montana 6’000 people just did. And only 600 wolves are remaining!
How is this possible! They want to exterminate wolfs in Montana! Indeed, this state issued over 6000 permits at 19$ piece (ridiculous) to hunt the last 625 remaining wolves in the state and loosened regulations governing hunting of the animals (5 wolves per hunter and extended period of hunt).
If only 2.1% of hunters issued a permit this year reach their bag limit, the wolf will disappear from Montana altogether. As wolves are pack animals, a single hunter will likely be able to kill several wolves in a single trip.
In contrast, the neighboring Wyoming has cut the number of wolves that may be killed in half to protect them from over-hunting.
