Otter on wolves: ‘Nothing else has worked’

Idaho Gov. Butch Otter spoke out tonight about his decision today to pull the state out of wolf management, shifting that authority to federal officials. Asked his response to opponent Keith Allred’s charge that by doing so, he’s yielding Idaho’s state sovereignty to the feds, Otter said, “Nothing else has worked. Everything that they’ve promised us, they’ve not kept. … It’s just time for us to draw the line.”

He also said the decision came “after months and months of frustration,” and said of wolves, “We didn’t want ‘em here in the first place.”
