From this story in the Billings Gazette:
_Hunters will be able to shoot as many as 220 gray wolves in Montana this fall under rules adopted Thursday by state wildlife commissioners. The hunt is scheduled to begin in early August and is expected to reduce the predator's Montana population by about 25 percent to 425 wolves. A wolf hunt is also planned in Idaho, where officials have not proposed harvest targets or quotas across much of the state.
_Wolves were taken off the endangered species list in an unprecedented move by Congress this spring in Montana, Idaho and parts of Utah, Washington and Oregon. Some hunters and livestock groups wanted a higher quota to reduce attacks on livestock and big game. Wildlife advocates argued the number should be lower so the population can keep expanding.
