Trapping Will Be Used Vs. Wolves

Trapping will be used to try to remove members of a wolf pack near Elk City and hunting outfitters working in Idaho's Lolo Elk Hunting zone will have another month to try to kill wolves there. Dave Cadwallader, supervisor of the Idaho Department of Fish and Game's Clearwater Region, said he approved the trapping effort after a wolf was killed by Idaho County deputies last weekend. Trappers from the federal Wildlife Services Agency will work with department officials, a landowner and the Idaho County Sheriff's Department to monitor the trap. In May, shortly after wolves were removed from federal protection, Cadwallader gave deputies authority to shoot wolves in and around the remote mountain hamlet/Eric Barker, Lewiston Tribune.

Question: Should trapping be used to thin out Idaho wolf numbers?
