Montana logs surge of interest in wolf trapping

PREDATORS -- More than 1,200 Montanans have indicated they want to participate in the state's first wolf trapping season, which will open later this year.  The trapping season was approved just last month by the Fish, Wildlife and Parks commission.

The prospective participants have signed the roster for course they'll be required to complete before they can buy a wolf trapping license.

FWP bureau chief Ron Aasheim said the department is working to develop curriculum and schedules to accommodate those interested in taking the class.

Idaho had similar initial interest from the public during its first wolf trapping season, but only a couple hundred people actually participated during the trapping season.
