Pro-wolf group plans to boycott Idaho spuds

By Associated Press

BOISE – A Connecticut-based animal rights group angry over Idaho’s planned wolf hunt aims to punch the state in its tuber.

Friends of Animals is urging foes of the hunt, due to start Tuesday, to boycott potatoes grown in Idaho.

Priscilla Feral, the group’s president, criticized Idaho Gov. Butch Otter’s role as an avid supporter of allowing hunters to shoot up to 220 wolves in the season that ends March 31.

A hunt in neighboring Montana, due to start Sept. 15, targets up to 75 of the big predators.

Feral says “Wolves don’t need Gov. Otter – or anyone else – to manage them.”
