Last year, for the first time since their establishment in Idaho during the mid-1990s, the number of wolf packs documented in the state declined from the prior year count. Despite documenting nine new packs, per official numbers released last Friday, April 4, the pack count dipped 16.4 percent from the 2012 year-end count of 128.
