76 Wolves Killed in Wyoming in 2017

monday_paw (7)_edit_logo_s,
Seventy-six killed wolves. That is what state "management" of wolves looks like in Wyoming.

Seventy-six wolves were killed for trophy in Wyoming since losing federally protected status in spring of 2017.

Within Wyoming's managed “Trophy Zone” 44 wolves have been killed since October 2017. In Wyoming's "Predator Zone," which encompasses the remaining ~85% of the state, wolves and pups can be killed any time, by almost any means, and without a license.

It's the 21st century. Is this what wildlife "management" should look like in our time?

Simply eradicating a species not only ignores the ecological (and monetary) worth of these animals, it also abdicates our role as stewards of the landscape.
