Protests With (Part) Wolves

Della Munnich and Merlyn Nelson demonstrate on behalf of wolves on Sherman Avenue looking south toward the Coeur d'Alene Resort Boardwalk.  Della is holding a wolf hand puppet while a part wolf / part dog pet tries to steal the scene in the lower left corner. Photographer Duane Rasmussen tells Huckleberries: “Apparently the wolf dog was there to represent his wild relatives. I reached down to him so he could smell the back of my hand.  He politely complied.  He was a friendly fellow.”

Wolf Lovers To Protest In North Idaho

Looks like an environmental organization named Howl Across America is planning a protest rally in Coeur d'Alene Sunday afternoon, staging from 11 to noon at  Ramsey Park. A Berry Picker sent a link to Hucks Online, containing an exchange between Howl Across America and its followers. First, the announcement: “The Northern Idaho Wolf Alliance is planning to hold two protest rallies in August to protest the wolf hunt planned to start on Sept. 3rd in Idaho, and to protest the removal of the Gray Wolf of the Northern Rockies from the Endangered Species list, by way of the Budget Bill last April. One of our protests will take place in Sandpoint, Idaho and the other in Coeur d' Alene.” The Sandpoint rally had been scheduled for yesterday afternoon. You can read the entire exchange here.
