A look at Wyoming wolves

January 27, 2009 at 06:30 AM

Tracking down these wild e-mails can be educational.

I’m in the process of cleaning out the many e-mails, pictures and stories that pile up in the computer during hunting season. Some go to the trash. Some, like this picture of wolves apparently shot in Wyoming, end up occupying too much of my time.

Illinois hunting and fishing

In the process, I did discover a very informative Web site on wolves in Wyoming. Pinedale Online news reporter Cat Urbigkit maintains Wolf Watch, which can easily steal an hour or more of your time if you aren’t careful. Trust me. I know.

As for the picture, it apparently shows two of the first five wolves shot near Big Piney and Pinedale, Wyoming. Shooting wolves in Wyoming became legal again last March. WIll that change in the months to come? Check back with Cat Urbigkit’s Wolf Watch for regular updates.

Recent posts include interesting data that shows about 1,500 wolves are found in Idaho, Montana and Wyoming.
