Landowner Forfeits Permission To Kill Wolf

Posted: Updated:

GARDINER – The Gardiner area landowner who lost 13 sheep to wolves last month, is forfeiting his permit to kill the second wolf.

Bill Hoppe has requested that Fish, Wildlife and Parks revise his on-site permit issued on April 249 to expire on May 189 2013.

In a press release issued by FWP, Hoppe says there is no need for the permit because he will be shipping his cow/calf pairs, which were grazing in the area of the depredation, to summer pasture in another location at the end of the week. The remaining live sheep were removed immediately following the event.

Hoppe legally shot and killed a wolf on May 6 2013. FWP believes the wolf killed by Hoppe was one of the two animals responsible for the depredation. After investigating the event, FWP does not believe Hoppe baited the wolves.

All of the dead sheep carcasses were moved off-site to avoid conflict, except for one that was mostly consumed by a bear a few days after the depredation.
