Report: 659 Wolves Live In Idaho

The Idaho Department of Fish and Game released Friday its 2013 Idaho Wolf Monitoring Progress Report. Its biologists documented 107 wolf packs in Idaho at the end of 2013 – fewer than the 117 documented at the end of 2012, but still the second-highest since reintroduction. Seven additional packs were added to the 2012 total based on evidence collected during 2013, bringing that total to 124 packs.
