Eye On Boise

It’s eco-something

Ted Rea, interim president of the Idaho Elk Breeders Association, was praising the elk farming industry after this morning’s Senate Agriculture Committee hearing when he made this slip: “This is just one form of eco-terror, eco-tourism.”

After two hours of testimony and debate on four bills, S-R reporter Parker Howell reports, the committee voted down three bills aimed at stopping so-called “canned hunts” in Idaho or otherwise putting restrictions on elk farming, and instead voted 8-1 to pass an industry-backed bill setting up a licensing system under the state Department of Agriculture.
