How many wolf carcasses were recovered from aerial hunting? Are any of the pelts available for education?

Answer

None of the carcasses of 14 wolves killed in the aerial control operation in February were retrieved. All were killed in remote areas and were from the ground without great difficulty. In the past we have retrieved most carcasses of wolves killed on the highway or killed as part of control actions to stop depredations on livestock. We have had the hides of many of those in good condition tanned and have had the skulls cleaned and preserved. Most have been distributed to educational institutions.
