HELENA, Mont. (AP) — Montana officials say the final tally from the state’s wolf hunting and trapping seasons is 225 predators. Fish, Wildlife and Parks officials said in a statement Monday that hunters killed 128 wolves and trappers another 97 in the season that closed Feb. 28.

That’s an increase over 2011 when 166 wolves were killed. Trapping was not allowed. The three counties with the most wolves killed were killed Lincoln, Park and Missoula counties. Another 104 wolves were killed by government wildlife agents and ranchers due to livestock attacks or other conflicts.

FWP officials say they will have a 2012 wolf population report by the end of March. In 2011, the population increased to at least 653 wolves. They say 18,642 wolf-hunting licenses and 1,500 trapping licenses were purchased for this season.
