This year’s controversial wolf hunt in the state of Montana continues to raise hackles among wildlife advocates with a recent announcement that the state plans to extend the season by one month. Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks is planning to extend the wolf hunting season until January 31, 2012 if the wolf quota of 220 is not met first. The state is also considering to offer the barbaric use of indiscriminate traps as tool to reduce the wolf population.
Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks is seeking comments on this proposal and the National WolfWatcher Coalition is making it easy for you to take action. Please click here to go the the NWC’s dedicated page to this issue.
