23 wolves killed in Idaho's latest wolf control action

Idaho Fish and Game, in cooperation with the USDA Wildlife Services, has completed another wolf control action in northern Idaho’s Lolo elk zone near the Idaho/Montana border to improve poor elk survival in the area.

In February, Wildlife Services agents killed 23 wolves from a helicopter. The action is consistent with Idaho’spredation management plan for the Lolo elk zone, where predation is the major reason elk population numbers are considerably below management objectives.
