Good Morning everyone. People need to be aware of the slaughter that still takes place on your wildlife. In Idaho Montana, and Wyoming alone they slaughtered 700 wolves in 2017 alone. You do not kill this many and expect a growing population, it is historically impossible with the hardships on wolves in the wild.
