Believing Hunters Will Wipe Out Remaining Montana Wolf Population

Ignorance is bliss, isn’t it? A writer claims Montana has only 625 wolves and that hunters are going to kill them all.

At the beginning of this year, there were only 625 wolves in Montana, a slight drop from the year before. If only 2.1% of hunters issued a permit this year reach their bag limit, the wolf will disappear from Montana altogether. As wolves are pack animals, a single hunter will likely be able to kill several wolves in a single trip.

I suppose it is some kind of back door compliment to think that hunters have some kind of special ability to “kill several wolves in a single trip.” And that happens how often?
