Helena, June 1, (THAINDIAN NEWS) Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks have discovered that there has been a total of 15 gray wolves killing in between a span of four days (May 17-May 21). It was said that the gray wolves were killed as they had attacked the livestock in the nearby regions. All the 15 gray wolves that were killed are from Canis Lupus species of the wolves.
Reportedly, the current year has witnessed a killing of 64 wolves out of which 44 were put to death by federal agents. Apart from that, these wolves were killed by the livestock owners or died in a collision with cars. It was also said that the federal officials are hunting for 18 more from the same pack.
In reaction to the steps that the state has employed to keep the wolves away from the human property and the livestock the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks officials called it an “aggressive” move. Speaking on the same note Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Wolf management specialist Liz Bradley is of the opinion that the state is acting too harsh on the problem with the wolves. She told the media that where there is a large pack there has to be a conflict between the Canis Lupus members. They have tried to lessen the conflict at many places but it has not worked. As a matter of fact the places where there is a conflict between the pack members the federal agents have gunned down wolves. Firstly the method was chiefly adopted for lions and coyotes but the recent killings proves that even wolves have fallen under the hitlist. 145 wolves were killed for attacking the livestock in the year 2009.
