"Montana wolf population up 15 percent in 2011"

HELENA, Mont. (AP) — The number of wolves in Montana increased by 15 percent to at least 653 animals despite the state's efforts to reduce the population with an extended hunting season, state wildlife officials said Wednesday.

Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks officials said 87 more wolves were counted at the end of 2011 than were in the state a year before. There were 130 verified packs and 39 breeding pairs counted, also increases from 2010 numbers.

Ranchers concerned about wolves attacking their livestock and hunters who blame wolves for a decline big game say that's way too many predators and the population must be reduced.
