Montana proves that gray wolves need federal Endangered Species Act protections

The state of Montana provides a stark reminder of why gray wolves need federal protection under the Endangered Species Act. Right now in Montana, it’s legal for an individual to hunt and trap up to 20 wolves per year, shoot wolves over bait, strangle them with neck snares, and kill wolves at night on private lands using spotlights. This is all part of Montana’s goal to kill 40 percent of the wolves in the state just this winter.
