PREDATORS -- With wolf-related issues burning or smoldering all over the place, a high-level panel is coming together for a public discussion at the University of Idaho Thursday night (April 5).

The Environmental Law Society is focusing on wolves, one of the most politicized and difficult issues in environmental law.

  • Ed Bangs (former U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Wolf Recovery Coordinator) will provide the scientific background;
  • Professor Dale Goble (University of Idaho College of Law) will describe the law surrounding wolf de-listing;
  • Professor John Freemuth (Boise State Masters of Public Administration Program) will talk about what public policy makers consider when negotiating their way through divergent interests to a workable solution. 

The presentation is set for Thursday, 6:30 p.m.,  Room 104, Menard Law Building
