Week 5 was another rough week for wolves in Idaho. Another ten wolves are dead as the state’s count is up to 33. Less than half of those wolves count towards any kind of quota, which means that 17 wolves are dead just because the state wants wolves murdered with no scientific justification of any kind.

Sawtooth and Panhandle are representing the most deadly wolf killing zones with 7 wolves in each zone having been killed.

It is interesting to note that Lolo has zero wolf kills, which based on the fact that they claim it has such a massive wolf issue which is destroying all their elk, is a tad surprising, don’t you think?

The hunting season for Idaho is a 33 days along, meaning they are killing wolves at about one a day.

Montana did not change any of their quotas this week, and the kill count is at 8… or… 13 depending on how you read their numbers which is either an increase of 3, … or 5, from the previous week. As stated last week, I believe that number to be the lower of the two as I believe they are double counting the wolf kills in the subdivided areas. Either way, it’s clear that Montana hunters are killing wolves at a low rate in comparison to Idaho.
