Although the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will have its official year-end wolf population count later this year, the federal agency recently provided an updated estimate.
FWS estimates there are about 190-200 wolves in Wyoming outside of Yellowstone National Park in about 27 packs, including about 20 breeding pairs. A total of 34 wolves have died in Wyoming in 2009, including 29 in control actions and 5 which are under investigation.
