Idaho: No Animals Used as Live Bait

Idaho Senate Bill S1305 passed committee and will go to the Senate for a vote as early February 29, 2012.  This bill allows for slaughter of wolves found molesting livestock by any means.  It specifically allows for baiting wolves with live animals.  State Senator Jeff Siddoway said “even dogs” could be used as bait.

Using any sentient being as bait to kill another is cruel and inhumane.  It causes undue stress to the bait animal and puts them in harms way to be killed by wolves before a gunman kills the wolf.



We need to go all out on this Warriors and get behind this petition. 5000 signatures are needed and I know we can do it.

Friends of the Clearwater, NIWA, Wolf Warriors and Howling for Justice are adamantly supporting this petition. The vote in the Idaho Senate can come as early as next week and then it’s on to the House. If  it’s voted out of the Idaho House I  have no doubt Governor Otter would sign it. If this bill becomes law it would decimate the already beleaguered Idaho wolves.

Remember what this bill would allow:

“The bill would let livestock owners whose animals are molested by wolves shoot the wolves from motorized vehicles, powered parachutes, helicopters or fixed-wing planes, by night or day, using rifles, pistols, shotguns, or crossbows, night scopes, electronic calls, and traps with live bait.”

Let’s get our signing fingers out for the wolves and achieve the 5000 signatures!!  Share this with everyone you know!!

The wolf haters might have gone too far this time. In their eagerness to slaughter wolves it could have the opposite effect and put wolves back under the protection of the ESA. Wouldn’t that be the ultimate irony?

For the wolves, For the wild ones,

Live Bait Okay to Kill Idaho Wolves

  • Idaho State Senator Jeff Siddoway introduced bill S1305 into the statehouse this week.  The bill will allow slaughter of wolves found molesting livestock, by any means.  This includes shooting wolves from motorized vehicles, powered parachutes, helicopters or fixed-wing planes.  Rifles, pistols, shotguns, crossbows, night scopes, electronic calls — day or night.
  • In Idaho, livestock consists of mainly sheep and cattle. The bill specifically includes the use of live bait. It’s not just wolves in Idaho that are in danger; any living creature could become bait if bill S1305is passed.
