Protesters gather in Helena to protest wolf hunt


About two dozen people have gathered in front of the Capitol in Helena to protest the hunting of wolves in Montana.

People from several wolf-advocacy groups are holding signs and howling, and plan to deliver their message to Governor Brian Schweitzer.

In a press release several days ago, Friends Of Animals spokeswoman Priscilla Feral said, “We’re demanding an immediate end to state-sponsored wolf slaughter and, until it ends, we’ve called for a complete boycott of the states of Montana, Idaho and Wyoming.”

Reporter Marnee Banks is at the scene and will have more information about the “Howl In” during this evening’s newscast.
