About two dozen wolf opponents are gathered on the Statehouse steps to celebrate yesterday's House passage of HB 343, declaring a disaster emergency in Idaho due to wolves, on a 64-5 vote. Anti-wolf activist Don Gillette told the group, "It's the first time in 12 years we've made any headway." He said rural Idahoans are concerned about wolves. "We're worried about our children standing waiting for buses," he said. "The only way you can manage Canadian wolves in Idaho is to get rid of them." The bill is up for a Senate committee hearing this afternoon at 2.
