Grey Wolf (Canis lupus) stockimage

Montana wildlife regulators rejected a proposal Wednesday to double the number of gray wolves that can be hunted or trapped in an area just north of Yellowstone National Park from two to four.

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks will offer a wolf-trapping certification class in Superior on Sunday, Dec. 7, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the 4-H Building at the Mineral County Fairgrounds.

The class is free, and certification is mandatory for anyone planning to trap wolves in Montana. Interested students may register online at fwp.mt.gov and follow the links to “Wolf Trapping Certification.” Those needing help with registration should call the Missoula FWP office at 542-5500.

In addition to specifics on equipment and techniques, participants will learn about the history, ethics, management, regulations related to wolves and wolf trapping. This will be the last wolf-trapping certification class in Montana until after trapping season.

Montana’s wolf trapping season runs from Dec. 15 to Feb. 28, 2015.
