Tester statement on State of Montana's wolf hunt quota

(U.S. SENATE) – Senator Jon Tester released the following statement in response to the State of Montana's decision to set a quota of 220 wolves for a hunt this fall.  Tester, chairman of the Congressional Sportsmen's Caucus, successfully removed Montana's wolves from the Endangered Species List earlier this year, returning their management to the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Commission.

"A science-based wolf hunt is part of our responsible plan that's best for Montana's sportsmen, ranchers–and for Montana's wolf population in the long run.  I returned wolf management back to the State of Montana because Montana had a plan that worked, and I'm pleased to see that plan moving forward once again."
