Montanans Can Kill 100 Wolves/Year

Montana wildlife commissioners have initially approved a proposal allowing landowners to kill up to 100 gray wolves annually if the predators pose a perceived threat. Thursday’s action significantly expands the circumstances under which wolves can be killed without a hunting license. In the past, that was largely limited to instances in which wolves attacked livestock. Under the new rule, shooting wolves would be permitted whenever they pose a potential threat to human safety, livestock or domestic dogs. State lawmakers last year passed a law requiring the expansion. Critics say the proposal is excessive and equates to a year-round wolf hunting season/AP. More here. (AP file photo)

Question: Isn't that a bit overboard?
