The Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Wolf  Team contact information is listed on their Web site: http://fwp.mt.gov/wildthings/management/wolf/contact.html. Thoughtful, polite and well researched feedback can certainly be shared with people on that page – and we are confident in saying – based on our previous dealings with that office – that they are at least politely receptive and appear appreciative.

Aggressive, angry and abusive feedback is detrimental to any cause it is given on behalf of. We would be highly disappointed in anyone who visits our Web site elected to be anything other than professional in any communication regarding wolves. Passion is acceptable as long as it is combined appropriately with a peaceful presentation.
