Idaho Fish & Game Commission Chairman Wayne Wright said on wolves, "Idaho's plan didn't fail, but yet the process did fail us." He questioned whether the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service bore some "responsibility" or "culpability" for that. Robin Thorson, FWS regional director, said the service is adding an employee in Boise to work specifically on the wolf issue, a move she said it hopes will remedy "any past flaws in the process."
