Some pretty reactive folk in Montana are looking to take on the feds with state legislation to “manage” wolves.
Legislator wants state to fight feds over wolves – Daily Inter Lake

These are the usual suspects: “Friends of the Northern Range Yellowstone Elk,” an anti-wolf state senator (Joe Balyeat) who poached an elk on private property in 2006, and the Montana Shooting Sports Association that wanted to secede from the United States back in the 1990s. They are probably on a fundraising/membership drive.
I found this on Balyeat and the people he associates. They’re Back: The Montana Legislature’s Right-Wing Presence. Dec. 2000. Montana Human Rights Network News.
The wolf is an organizational tool for their extremist political and right wing religious views. Ralph Maughan
