Montana wolf management log gives Washington glimpse of future

PREDATORS — Washington has killed it's first wolf in more than 70 years in response to threats to livestock. Get used to it, as I pointed out in today's Outdoors column.

Wolf watchers in Washington, where the first wolf was been killed under a wolf management plan on Monday, can take a look at Montana and get a glimpse of what's in store.

Click on the attached document to see the latest update to Montana's weekly wolf management report.  Bottom line: Montana has had to kill a total of 65 gray wolves this year after they were implicated in livestock depredation.  That's in addition to 45 wolves taken in the 2012 portion of the state's wolf hunting season.
