Last year Wyoming Governor Matt Mead and the wolf management plan that will come before the State Legislature during next month's budget session could be a lightning rod for controversy, this according to State Senator Bruce Burns.

The original plan agreed on by Governor Mead and U.S. Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar would require Wyoming to maintain a population of 100 wolves and at least ten breeding pair outside of Yellowstone National Park and the Wind River Indian Reservation.

The plan also implements a flex zone for northern Sublette and Lincoln counties, as well as southern Teton County that would protect wolves in that area from October 15th until the end of the following February.
