The wolf population "issue" in Idaho continues along its usual path of state officials looking for a "reasonable" solution. Here is a recent quote from our governor:
“They say Butch Otter wants to kill all the wolves in Idaho,” Otter said. “Well, they’re right.” - The Owyhee Avalanche
And they wonder why the courts, the federal wildlife officials, and the public in general don't trust the state with responsible management of wolves. I still contend that this would have been a non-issue years ago if the states had taken a leadership position and put together reasonable management plans. Instead, comments like this pour money into the legal and political battles on both sides.
