Idaho Basin Butte Wolves Gunned Down

Basin Butte wolves, Stanley, Idaho were gunned down by Wildlife Services. Who is Wildlife Services?…click here.

I am appalled and saddened by this action.  Why would Idaho state game managers order this killing when the wolf hunting season is in full swing?  Is this another method of reaching the wolf quota?  How much more wolf death is there going to be? When will the national press pick up this story?

From Ralph Maughan:

“You might want to call Jim Lukens, the Salmon area regional supervisor and ask him. (208) 756-2271. Approval of Wildlife Services wolf kills has been parceled out to the regional supervisors, like Mark Gamlin (who seems to have few to no wolves in his district).”

“USDA Wildlife Services officials didn’t immediately respond to e-mail and telephone requests for comment. The division, with a budget of about $120 million, reported killing some 4.9 million animals in 2008 in efforts to control predators and invasive species.a”
