Yellowstone National Park biologists and park officials reported that 2 female wolf pups and one young wolf barely a year old from a popular wolf pack were killed by hunters in Montana.

The killing was made just outside the northern boundary after the start of the wolf season. The killings were considered lawful since a law was signed by Republican Gov. Greg Gianforte, permitting the hunt to reduce attacks on livestock.

The Montana Park is currently trying to convince Montana officials to reinstate the law regarding wolf hunting to protect its wolf packs which are sadly, now down to just 24 wolves.
