Montana’s wolf population has decreased by as many as 300 animals since the state instituted an annual hunt, but biologists monitoring the species believe the number may be stabilizing.

That’s according to the newly released Montana Gray Wolf Program Annual Report from the state Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks.

At the end of 2017, the report says, “FWP confirmed the presence of at least 124 packs, 633 wolves, and 63 breeding pairs in Montana.”

That number, the agency believes, is a minimum.<<<
