Mike Jimenez of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is busy doing paperwork, tallying up the official mid-year wolf population count for Wyoming. He reported on August 15 that Wyoming has 14 breeding pairs of wolves in the state (outside of Yellowstone National Park), while Yellowstone National Park harbors an additional 11 breeding pairs. That's 25 breeding pairs for the Yellowstone/Wyoming count.
Incidentally, the Green River pack in Sublette County is not part of this count because it is slated for removal due to livestock depredations.
