(JACKSON, Wyo.) – Wyoming wolf hunters will end the season short of the state’s quota for filled tags.

According to a report released last week, the state was 11 short of the 52 kills allowed for the season, which ended today. Another 23 wolves were killed this year by ranchers and other landowners protecting livestock.

The state sold nearly 4,500 tags this year. If federal courts allow wolf hunts to continue, the season will reopen Oct. 1.
