What's up with wolves in Utah?
by Cat Urbigkit, Pinedale Online!
July 19, 2007

Utah has a management plan in place, which state officials say will guide management once wolves are delisted. Utah is unique in that it may experience gray wolf dispersal from its northern neighbors, while Mexican wolves may move in from the southern border states.

According to the Utah plan, wolves will be allowed to disperse into Utah, and be conserved, except when or where:

• Wolves conflict with the wildlife management objectives of the Ute Indian Tribe;

• Wolves cause unacceptable livestock depredation; or

• Wolves contribute to wildlife populations not meeting management objectives as defined by the Utah Wildlife Board’s Predator Management Policy.

Livestock owners will be fully compensated for losses of livestock to wolves. Read the plan at the link below.
