    1/4 of Rocky Gray Wolves Killed in First Hunting Season in Decades



    The first hunting season for the once-endangered Rocky gray wolves in decades has ended, leaving an estimated total of 500 dead. According to Earth Justice, some 250 of those were killed by hunters with permits, and another 250 were killed by federal and state agents protecting livestock. There were 1,700 gray wolves counted at the end of the year, after 500 were killed--which means nearly a quarter of the entire population was wiped out.

    188 wolves were hunted and killed in Idaho, and 75 were killed in Montana. The hunting season that began last year was extremely controversial, as many wildlife conservationists and biologists argued (sensibly, it seems) that the wild wolf population should be allowed to stabilize at somewhere between 2000 and 6000 before hunting be allowed.

    It's been a long and ugly battle to try to protect the wolves, which were hunted to the brink of extinction by the 1930s. Reintroduced into the wild in 1995, their populations slowly grew, making the wolves one of the great US conservation success stories. Then, just five years later, people decided they wanted to hunt them again.

    There were myriad court battles, and the wolves eventually got delisted from the Endangered Species list, relisted by the courts, and delisted again by the Bush administration. Ken Salazar, the Secretary of the Interior in the Obama Administration, finally decided to uphold Bush's delisting, and presto! The wolves were fair game to hunt in Montana and Idaho (but not in Wyoming, where numbers were still too few).



    And even though 500 out of 1600 seems to be a pretty sizable chunk of the population, the grim part is that it could have been worse--the hunting seems to have hewed pretty close to the limits, and it certainly raised my eyebrows that 6,000 licenses had been issued in Idaho before the season began.

    Yet the stability of the species is still in question--Earth Justice is continuing to lobby for the wolves' protection, as they explain:
    Last fall, a federal judge agreed with Earthjustice lawyers that the hunts likely are illegal, but he nonetheless allowed the hunts to proceed. The first wolf kill in Idaho occurred Sept. 1, when the season opened. Montana hunters started banging away at their wolf population on Sept. 15, nearing that state's harvest limit of 75 so fast that the season abruptly ended in November.


    Earthjustice, representing 13 conservation groups, is continuing its court challenge to the delisting in U.S. District Court in Montana. The suit seeks to restore Endangered Species Act protections to the wolf until wolf numbers are stronger, migration corridors are protected, and the states develop adequate laws and regulations to protect wolf populations from extinction.

    This is totally disgusting. Delisting them just makes it a free-for-all.They ought to ban all hunting. Or maybe just allow hunting the hunters. Now THAT would be fun - see how they like it. I'd definitely do that.
    Love all living things whose humble task is not opposed in any way to yours, to ours: men with simple hearts, honest, without vanity and malice, and all the animals, because they are beautiful, without exception and without exception indifferent to whatever "idea" there may be. Love them, and you will see the eternal in the glance of their eyes of jet, amber, or emerald. Savitri Devi

    This is just outrageous!

    They can keep animals like Pronghorn in there million and many other animals. But when it comes to Wolf they are not allowed to set there paw on the ground. Why is that?

    I see same retardnes in Sweden about taking care of wildlife. Hunters shud be banned and all the wildlife be run by the state in a better manner. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Bi...le,_ca1870.png This picture is not a turn on for normal humans. Why is so much haterd against nature and wildlife? Shuden't folks be happy to live in nature? Just move to New york I tell ya!

    Aren't Ken Salazar jewish? I find it strange that almost all george w bush colleagues now working for obama. Where is the change here?
    What we do in life, echoes in eternity!

    The ALF should have more illegal actions against hunting because when the system protects the genocide of a species then you can not win legally.

    Wow, that's quite a sizeable proportion of the overall population to be killed in a hunting season. I'm not sure what it is for my state in regards to the kills per hunter and the kill ratio. And this was allowed by B.O.! I would've thought for sure all the liberal animal rights activists would've been all over him about this. And it's just pelt hunting anyways. Bad stuff. I'm against this totally, and had no idea it was happening.
