.@GovGianforte violated hunting regulations when he trapped and killed a Yellowstone-collared wolf near the park boundary last month. Our story here: boisestatepublicradio.org/post/montana-g… #mtnews #mtpol
It's legal to kill wolves when they wander outside the park's boundaries. @GovGianforte had the necessary licenses but he failed to take a required wolf trapping certification course before he trapped and shot an adult, black wolf known as "1155."
He was given a written warning by @MontanaFWP and enrolled in the online class 3/24. He was allowed to keep the animal's skull and hide. But @Backcountry_H_A 's John Sullivan says the governor should've known better. "It's difficult to fathom accidentally not taking that class."
According to state documents obtained by the Mountain West News Bureau, @GovGianforte killed the wolf on a private ranch owned by Robert E. Smith, a former campaign contributor and director of the conservative Sinclair Broadcasting Company.
