"The Interior Department will announce the de-listing of wolves in Idaho and Montana within thre hour - Wyoming is not included," Gov. Butch Otter just told the Idaho Press Club. Asked by reporters for his  reaction, Otter leaned his head back and howled like a wolf. "I'm grateful for the secretary's confidence in Idaho's management plan and I have every confidence that Cal Groen and our Fish & Game Department will justify his confidence by a well-structured management plan which will yield a sustainable population of Canadian grey wolves in Idaho," Otter said. "This is pretty powerful medicine for us. ... This is great news."
