Wyoming Gets Wolf Money

Cheyenne, Wy – While they battle the feds on wolf management, the Wyoming Game and Fish Department will start spending some 200-thsouandd dollars in federal money to prepare for future management of wolves. The one time appropriation will be used to study how wolves are impacting big game species. The money must be spent by 2007. Federal officials have denied Wyoming's wolf management plan, after accepting plans from Idaho and Montana. Wyoming has taken the federal government to court over the matter.
