How many wolves are in Idaho? How accurate is the official number released?

you release the official count at 740 + animals, but reports of some employees place the number much higher. So what is a better estimation?

Answer

Annual numbers are based on best information available and are retroactively updated as new information is obtained. The official estimate for the end of 2011 was 746 wolves.
