Live Bait, Kill Wolves Bill Is DEAD!!!

February 28, 2012

I guess the feds warning  scared the bejeezus out of the anti-wolf crowd.  USFWS made it clear that the Live Bait Kill Wolves Bill was unacceptable  and could cause Idaho wolves to be relisted, if  passed.

The wicked witch is DEAD!! The Idaho Senate sent S1305 back to committee, effectively killing it!! This is a victory for Idaho wolves, wolf advocates and bait animals. Thanks to everyone who signed the petition and called Idaho Senators!! You rock!!

Senate sends wolf hunting bill back to committee; procedural move kills the legislation

BOISE, Idaho — A bill that would allow Idaho ranchers to use powered parachutes, helicopters and live-bait traps to hunt problem wolves has died in the Senate.

Senators agreed Tuesday to send the controversial legislation back to the Resources and Environment Committee — a move that likely ends the bill’s chances this year.

Feds Warn Idaho About Wolf Baiting Bill…

Well we’ve all been talking about it and now the feds have issued a warning to Idaho concerning Senate Bill 1305, The Live Bait, Kill Wolves Bill.  The vote on the bill has been halted until tomorrow, March 1, 2012.

Federal official warns wolf killing law could return predator to threatened listing

A federal wildlife official said Monday a bill that would allow ranchers to use live bait to lure marauding wolves to traps or shooters would make Idaho’s laws to protect wolves inadequate.

Brian Kelly, the Idaho state supervisor for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, told the Idaho Statesman that the bill, introduced by Terreton Republican Jeff Siddoway, would reverse a decade of work by the state and federal government to protect wolves and rancher interests. The major problem is that it allows people to kill any wolves within 36 hours of harassment of their livestock or family pets without approval of the Idaho Department of Fish and Game.

“What I’m telling people is anything that compromises or usurps the process or the management through the peer-reviewed plan of the department is a problem for us and we’ve been pretty clear about that,” Kelly said.
