An article on the KAJ-TV Web site outlines the new plan which was released by the two tribes.

PABLO – The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes will use lethal control, if deemed necessary, as part of its wolf management plan. The goal of the plan provides for the long-term presence of wolves on the Reservation while also working to minimize conflicts between wolves and humans.

The Tribal Council approved a policy supporting the cultural and ecological significance of wolves.

Wolf population management will depend heavily upon wolf behavior and the amount of conflict with other wildlife, livestock and people. If there are few or no conflicts with a higher population of wolves on the Reservation, no excessive effort to reduce the wolf population will occur.
