I didn't realize they had legalized wolf hunts in Wyoming, outside of Yellowstone.

The article doesn't say anything about this particular wolf (or any particular wolves) preying on livestock in the area, so it is really sad that this Yellowstone wolf stepped out of bounds and got killed for it.

I can't blame ranchers for wanting to protect their livestock, but pre-emptive killing rubs me the wrong way.
