According to a story in the Idaho Statesman, with the wolf population continuing to rise, Montana wildlife officials have tentatively agreed  to loosen some restrictions for hunting them, including trapping.

The wolf population has risen 15 percent in the last year, with gray wolves now reaching over 650 in numbers. The goal for Montana is to get that number down to 425.

Ranchers and hunters have expressed concerns over the growing population due to wolves destroying livestock and wildlife populations.
