LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) - The director of Idaho Fish and Game says more wolves need to be killed in the Lolo area of the Clearwater River basin to stop the decline in elk populations.

Cal Groen says state wildlife managers will recommend significant changes to wolf seasons in the Lolo and other zones where elk numbers are not at management levels.

He says management tools could include increased harvest limits, multiple tags, trapping, and asking outfitters to help reduce wolf numbers. Groen says eight of the state's 29 elk hunting zones are below the department's population objectives.

He says five of those have significant wolf populations, including the Lolo, Selway and Sawtooth zones.

The hunting changes could be put in place next fall.
