Members of the Sandpoint-based North Idaho Wolf Alliance turned out at the Coeur d'Alene Fish and Game office Friday morning to protest the state's first regulated wolf hunt. Alongside the protesters was a smaller group who came out to show their support of the upcoming hunts. Approximately 40 protestors gathered at the scene, while 15 wolf hunt supporters gathered. The rally, which began at 11 a.m., consisted mainly of protestors and supporters carrying signs/KHQ. More here.

Question: Are those protesting the pending wolf hunts in Idaho and Montana naive or noble?
