There really is no central information on how many wolves are killed worldwide, but in the United States, 500 gray wolves in the Northern Rockies region were killed in 2009, or about 41 per month. This occurred following the removal of wolves from endangered species protection in Montana and Idaho in 2009, an action that is widely contested by environmental groups. Montana had a huge planned wolf hunt and set a quota of 255 wolves to be killed that very year. Additional wolves are killed in Alaska, where aerial hunting of wolves was permitted by the Palin administration. Conservationists estimate that wolves killed legally and illegally in Alaska are in the range of 2,000 per year.
