Idaho study finds mountain lions kill more elk than wolves - posted 2 months ago

And yes, I read horne report and nothing / zero mention / of the inferrence made in the headline that mnt kions kill more elk than wolves.

Furthermore, Hornes study identified that wolf harvest doea not reduce wolf numbers.
,However, it is important to realize that even when harvest is additive, this does not necessarily mean harvest will reduce population size because abundance is also a function of recruitment. We observed a decrease in pack size after harvest was implemented, but this effect was short‐lived; pack sizes returned to pre‐harvest levels as harvest rate declined. Thus, the level of harvest may be more important for understanding the effect of harvest on wolf populations than simply whether or not there is harvest (Adams et al. 2008)."

And "Effective wolf management requires that agencies have management prescriptions that can be easily implemented, have a significant effect on populations, and whose outcomes are predictable."
