WY ups wolf quota
The Associated Press reports that Wyoming officials have approved a 58-wolf hunting quota for the 2018 hunt in the trophy game area of the northwest portion of the state, up from last yearís quota of 44.

Wolf data
The Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife is revising its wolf-data system in which it shares locations of radio-collared wolves with livestock producers and county officials. The Lewiston Tribune reports that the goal of the program is to help livestock producers protect their herds, while also protecting the carnivores.

The controversy over the presence and impact of wolf and brown bear populations isnít limited to the areas where they occur in the United States. Two local councils in northern Italy recently legalized the shooting of these large carnivores, generating controversy with environmental interests. Italyís wolf population now numbers around 1,600, and it also harbors a small population of reintroduced brown bears.
