(YELLOWSTONE, N.P.) – Wildlife activists are asking Wyoming Gov. Matt Mead to create a buffer zone around Yellowstone and Grand Teton national parks to reduce the number of wolves killed in the region.
Nearly 60 wolves have been killed in the state since federal protections for wolves were lifted in October. Advocates believe there are only a few hundred wolves living in the state, too few to warrant the recent change in legislation.
Mead says he has no plans to change the current laws in place.
