Wolf management continues to be a big concern in the state as Wyoming and the federal government still have not agreed on a plan that would allow wolves to be removed from the endangered species list in Wyoming.
A rally to raise awareness about wolf management took place in Cody over the weekend, with residents expressing concern over reduced game numbers. State Auditor Rita Meyer, who is currently running for governor, also says she is worried about the impact from the increased wolf population
The state-proposed plan is to allow unregulated killing of wolves over most of the state, except in certain protected areas like Yellowstone Park. Environmental groups argue the state-proposed plan would threaten the long-term viability of wolves. Some say a controlled wolf hunting plan, as adopted by Idaho and Montana, is a sound management tool which doesn't endanger the long-term viability of wolf populations in those states.
