As part of a three-day operation in northern Idaho, 14 wolves were shot and killed according to the Spokesman-Review. Federal wildlife agents, in coordination with the Idaho Department of Fish and Game, were reducing the number of wolves to protect elk herds in the Lolo area.

Elk population has been a constant decline in the area for many years, and wolves are a big reason why. Recent research from Idaho Fish and Game says wolves are the biggest threat to female elk, as well as calves under 6 months of age.
