Elk group grant funds wolf study in Montana

MISSOULA, Mont. — Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks accepted a $25,000 grant from the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation to assist its wolf management plan.



“RMEF staunchly supports the science-based state management of wolves and other predators,” said David Allen, president and CEO.



“This grant will put more collars on more wolves so Montana’s wildlife managers have more relevant data on Montana’s wolf population. We are far over objective on wolf numbers and the more specific data we have the better we can manage the population downward.”



“We very much appreciate the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation’s continuing support of sciencebased wildlife management. RMEF has been a great friend of wildlife and a valuable partner with our agency,” said Jeff Hagener, FWP director.
