Fish & Game rejects most-aggressive option for public wolf hunt

Idaho's Fish & Game Commission has voted 4-3 against its most aggressive option for the state's first public wolf hunt, which called for letting hunters kill 49 percent of the state's wolf population, or 430 wolves statewide. They're now debating a second option, for 25 percent or 220 wolves. Also on the table is a proposal for a 15 percent "harvest rate," or 130 wolves. The commission is meeting in Idaho Falls; once the final vote is taken, commissioners will hold a call-in press conference for reporters from around the state.
