On February 21 FWP Warden Steve Magone retrieved a dead adult female wolf from the Libby Area. The matter is under investigation by state and federal officers, so no further information can be released at this time.
FWP’s federally approved wolf management program aims to conserve and actively manage a recovered wolf poulation in a manner similar to the way lions and black bears are managed. FWP seeks to maintain a benchmark of 15 breeding pairs of wolves in Montana.
FWP encourages anyone who sees a wolf or wolf sign to send a report at www.fwp.mt.gov/wildthings/wolf, mail a pre-printed postcard available at all FWP offices, or, in northwest Montana, call Kent Laudon at 751-4586. Data gathered from the public helps FWP document wolf activity in new areas. It also helps FWP confirm pack size and wolf distribution.
