(Helena Independent Record) – Carolyn Sime, a pioneer in wolf management in Montana, is leaving her job with Fish, Wildlife and Parks in order to pursue a law degree.

“After 10 years of late-night phone calls, ranch meetings and 20 years of game check stations, I’m ready to try something new,” Sime said last week. “But I leave with some really, really fond memories of the relationships we’ve made and the work toward finding common ground, having open dialogues and civil discussions.”

For more than a decade, the petite brunette was in the epicenter of the wolf management controversy. She developed Montana’s wolf management plan, spearheaded the transition from a federally led species recovery program to a state-led conservation and management program, and shepherded Montana’s first fair chase wolf hunting season in 2009.
