A Walk for Wolves will be held at 11:30 a.m. Saturday, beginning at the Kootenai County Courthouse Building. This walk is organized and led by citizens concerned about the plight of the wolves in the Northwest. The Following was information sent to us from "Adopt A Wolf Pack":

  • As of April 3, 312 wolves have been killed in the wolf hunt, 124 of those by trapping, during the  current, ongoing 2012 -13 wolf hunt.
  • The Idaho Wolf hunt started on Aug. 30, 2012
  • During the 2011-12season 379 wolves were killed by hunting and trapping.
  • During the 2009-10 season 188 wolves were killed by hunting.
  • The hunting season for wolves has been extended in the Lolo, Selway, Middle Fork, and portions of the Dworshak-Elk City regions until June 30.  Right through the season when wolves give birth and start raising their pups.  Killing puppies is legal.

Question: Do you plan to walk in support of wolves?
