Ten Wolves Killed So Far

Lander, WY – Wyoming Game and Fish officials say that at least 10 wolves have been killed in the state since the federal government ended its protection of the animals last month.

All 10 of the wolves have been killed in Sublette County. They've been killed in the area of the state where regulations
classify wolves as predators that can be killed on sight.

Wolves in the northwestern corner of Wyoming are classified as trophy game animals that generally can only be killed by licensed hunters.

Federal agents on Monday killed four wolves at a Sublette County ranch that had reportedly killed calves inside a rancher's cow pen over the weekend.
