Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks, requests that those recreating in the outdoors report any sightings or signs of wolves.
A gray wolf is, on average, 2.5 feet tall, 5-6 feet long, and 70-120 pounds with a broad snout, round ears and fur ranging from gray, black or white.
To report a dead wolf, or possible illegal activity, contact the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service at 307-261-6365, or call 1-800-TIP-MONT.
FWP prepares annual reports documenting the status and distribution of the Montana wolf population and makes population and other management decisions to help the state meet the challenge of living with wolves. Additional information on the numbers and locations of wolves will help FWP manage their presence on the landscape and document their numbers.
Wolves in northern Montana are currently classified as "endangered" and wolves in southern Montana are managed as "experimental, non-essential" populations.
