Wyoming Ups Wolf Kill Quota to a Record 58 in Trophy Zone


The Wyoming Game and Fish Commission just approved upping the kill quota in its “trophy Zone” this year to 58 animals, a 32% increase over last year’s quota of 44 and a record high since the species was reintroduced 23 years ago.

The trophy hunt season runs October 1 – December 31.

In the other 85% of the state outside the trophy zone, hunting wolves is on 365 days a year. Wolves are classified as shoot-on-sight vermin. Guns, snares, explosives – almost any form of violence is allowed to kill these animals.

It’s the 21st century. Is this what wildlife “management” should look like in our time?
