Public input sought for wolves on Flathead Reservation

PABLO - A Tribal Wildlife Management Program is seeking public comment on Wolf Management on the Flathead Indian Reservation.

The program is starting a process to update the Tribes' Northern Gray Wolf Management Plan for the area, which was approved by the Tribal Council in 2011.

While tribal officials say the plan has worked well in addressing wolf attacks upon domestic livestock, there are still some needs for modification to adapt the plan to an increasing wolf population on the Reservation and adjacent areas.

The Tribal Wildlife Management Program is now seeking input from the public in an attempt to thoroughly address relevant wolf management issues.

Comments and suggestions are asked to be provided by Oct. 30. More information on the plan can be found here, or by calling the Tribal Wildlife Management Program at wildlife@cskt.org.
