Bill Calls For Killing 500 Wolves

Republicans promoting Gov. Butch Otter’s proposed $2 million taxpayer-financed fund to kill wolves hope the cash helps reduce Idaho’s population of these canine predators by more than 500 animals, to just 150 wolves in 15 packs. Rep. Marc Gibbs of Grace and Sen. Bert Brackett of Rogerson on Monday told the House Resources and Conservation Committee the money set aside with Otter’s proposal, along with smaller contributions from the Idaho Department of Fish and Game and livestock producers, will bolster Idaho’s predator arsenal and help it reach a 150-wolf goal. Idaho now has about 680 wolves, according to Fish and Game estimates in 2012/Betsy Russell, SR. More here. (AP file photo)
