Humans Hunting Wolves: Effects on Wolf Populations

The prospect of hunting wolves recently removed from the Endangered Species List in the northern Rockies or the western Great Lakes region may be surprising, but throughout Alaska and Canada wolves have long been harvested by people for their pelts. The effects of human harvest on wolf populations are not well understood because wolf research has focused largely on protected, at-risk populations or those subject to agency control programs. According to a new Wildife Monograph by the USGS and Alaska Department of Fish and Game, half of the wolves harvested in the central Brooks Range of Alaska were probably transient wolves, including dispersers from local packs and distant migrants. The authors also examined other North American wolf studies and found that wolf population trends are not affected by human-caused losses that are less than 30 percent of the population each year. These results are important for wildlife managers and the public because they provide information for the debate surrounding wolf management. For more information, visit http://www.wildlifejournals.org/perlserv/?request=get-toc&issn=0084-0173&volume=170&issue=1 or contact Layne Adams at 907-786-7159 or ladams@usgs.gov.
