Otter puts Idaho wolf management in perspective


"I hear from environmental groups all over the United States when we started our very successful wolf hunt, that, 'Why was I killing all those wolves, and how beautiful they are.'

"You respond back to them and say, 'When was the last time you came to Idaho and spent some money to look at a wolf?'"

Idaho Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter, testifying before Congress on the need for the federal government to provide more funding to states for wolf management.
