Idaho Wolf Wars Part 2

Wolf advocates knew this was coming. Coupled with the leaked IDFG Memo there is no doubt War Is Being Declared On Idaho’s Wolves! They are moving closer to Wyoming’s unacceptable plan. We all predicted this from the onset.  What a dark day for wolves in Idaho.  I hope Judge Molloy is watching this charade.

From The Spokesman Review:

Resolution seeks ‘emergency’ reduction in wolves in the state

2:44 p.m. on February 15
Lawmakers would declare an emergency and urge the governor to do the same and order the state’s wolf population reduced, under a concurrent resolution introduced today in the House Resources Committee at the urging of Rep. Dick Harwood, R-St. Maries. “This bill is about legislators being able to show their support, should the governor so wish to have an executive order to have wolves removed,” Harwood told the committee. Rep. George Sayler, D-Coeur d’Alene disagreed, and said the resolution appears to move Idaho toward a position like that of Wyoming, which hasn’t been given authority to manage its wolf population because of its refusal to enact acceptable wolf management plans.

“I think we all know how big this issue has been in our state the last 10 or 12 years, and the struggle we went through as a state to get to the position to where we can manage wolves,” Sayler said. “To me, this is a move back toward a Wyoming position. … This is a step back to more court cases.” Sayler moved to kill the bill, but was outvoted along party lines, with only the panel’s Democrats voting in support. The committee then voted, again along party lines, to introduce a corrected version of the resolution. Among the last-minute changes: The resolution now says that it encourages the governor to declare a state of emergency and require the Idaho Department of Fish and Game to use “any legal means” to reduce wolf numbers, instead of just “use any means.”

The committee also voted to introduce a measure from Rep. Phil Hart, R-Athol, to make “human consumptive use” of certain game species a top priority for Fish & Game’s management of wildlife, even though Hart, tied up in another committee, didn’t show up to present the bill. Rep. Dell Raybould questioned whether a precedent was being set that the way to get a bill introduced was to not show up. Chairman Bert Stevenson said he was concerned about that, but since the committee wanted to proceed and today is the last day for bill introductions, he allowed it.

  1. It’s clear that the Mullahs in Boise and at the Idaho Dept of Livestock, er Fish and Game, are really rattled by the gray wolf’s refusal to cooperate in dying like good soldiers. So, they’re issuing Fatwahs and declaring Jihad on all wolves, near and far, by whatever means necessary.

    Thank you, Nabeki, for shining the light of truth on these issues!

    As-Salamu Alaykum, gray wolves….

  2. The old ‘shoot it and it will go away’ method.

    On the brighter side: I think they can kiss their ‘state [mis]management’ goodbye very soon.

  4. dear people

    wolves are important for the eco system they keep populations in check so they do starve they eat the weak and keep herds strong. for any one murdering wolves there is a bag limit you must abide by. I am asking people to stop the slaughter of these gorgeous animals. they have a right to raise a family they way you and i do. they are endangered species and it is up to fish and game what they do not you. the day this earth is with out wolves will be very sad i prefer them to you any day of the week. what ever we humans touch we destroy.
