Wyoming wolf kill: 23

Twenty-three wolves have been killed in Wyoming's predator zone so far in 2013, as of the last report from the Wyoming Game and Fish Department (dated July 26, 2013, at 4 p.m.).

Nearly all of Wyoming’s wolves are in the northwest corner of the state, within the trophy game area - not in the predator zone. WG&F notes that approximately 92 percent of the wolves in Wyoming are in the Wolf Trophy Game Management Area/Seasonal Wolf Trophy Game Management Area, where they are intensively monitored and managed through regulated hunting seasons.

At the end of 2012, WG&F estimated there were at least 277 wolves in the state, in 43 packs, with 10 of those packs located inside Yellowstone National Park, and 2 packs on the Wind River Indian Reservation.
