Speaker: Wolf Reintroduction ‘Fraud’

Item: Speaker: Say no to more wolves: Filmmaker says reintroduction was 'fraud'/George Kingson, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: It was a full house Thursday at the Kootenai County Reagan Republicans weekly meeting at Fedora Pub and Grille. The topic of discussion responsible for the large crowd was the ever-controversial Idaho wolf. Documentary filmmaker Scott Rockholm, the meeting's guest speaker, told the group: “Wolves kill for fun. It's called 'sport reflex killing' and (Idaho) Fish and Game has chosen to hide this fact from the public.” In 2010, Rockholm filmed and produced “Yellowstone is Dead,” a work he described as exposing the devastating effects of the importation of Canadian wolves into Idaho.

Question: If we could have a do-over, would you support wolf reintroduction in the Inland Northwest?
