CdA Vigil Set For 337 ‘Fallen Wolves’

From a press release: The Northern Idaho Wolf Alliance (NIWA) will conduct a candlelight vigil to honor 337 fallen Idaho and Montana wolves, and protest the war against wolves, this evening starting at 4:30 - the night of "The Full Wolf Moon." They will gather near the Independence Point parking lot in Coeur d'Alene and walk through downtown from there. NIWA is joining Howling for Justice and Wolf Warriors to make The Candlelight Vigil for Wolves under the Full Wolf Moon a "Howl Across America" event, encouraging wolf supporters to hold their own vigils across the country on this special night/Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Is it proper for Northern Idaho Wolf Alliance to referred to wolves killed during wolf hunts in Idaho and Montana as "fallen"?
