The pack's alpha female was among at least five collared wolves from Yellowstone killed by hunters this fall, which prompted Montana wildlife officials to shut down hunting and trapping near the park until a judge blocked the move. Attorneys for Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks will be in court Monday, Jan. 14, 2013, arguing that wolf harvest closures north of Yellowstone National Park should be reinstated.

LIVINGSTON (AP) — Whether gray wolf hunting and trapping should continue outside the gates of Yellowstone National Park is in the hands of a state judge, after Montana wildlife officials pressed Monday to reinstate a temporary ban.

At issue in the lawsuit before District Judge Brenda Gilbert is the killing of wolves within two areas north of Yellowstone that total about 60 square miles. But the case has quickly emerged as the latest flashpoint in the bitter, decades-long fight over wolves in the Northern Rockies.
