There are around 6,000 grey wolves in the lower 48 states. 4,000 of them are in Minnesota, Michigan and Wisconsin, and about 1,600 in Idaho, Montana and Wyoming, according to Amaroq Weiss with the Center for Biological Diversity - a nonprofit based in Arizona.
She said the number of wolves in the county is a fraction of what it used to be.
“About 1% of what their former historic numbers were and they're occupying only about 10% of what their former historic range was,” Weiss said. “So not very much at all.”
