War on Wolves: Reform the Federal Wildlife-Killing Program
It's just unfair. Hunters and outfitters are picking off the wolves of Yellowstone National Park. Call upon officials to create a buffer zone to protect them: http://wg.convio.net/site/MessageViewer?em_id=10181.0

6. Idaho hunters kill 96 wolves
November 18, 2012 11:30 pm • Associated Press
COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho — Idaho officials say hunters have killed 96 wolves so far in the 2012-2013 hunting season.
Idaho Fish and Game officials tell the Coeur d'Alene Press that through Thursday 16 wolves have been killed in Idaho's Panhandle wolf zones since the season opened Aug. 30.
Also on Thursday the 2012-2013 wolf trapping season opened and runs through March 31 in the Panhandle zone.
Phil Cooper of Idaho Fish and Game says it's difficult to determine how the pace of this season's wolf harvest season compares to last season. The statewide total for the 2011-2012 wolf season was 255 killed by hunters and 124 killed by trappers.
Nothing will bring as big a grin to an Idaho hunter as talk of killing wolves. Trust me. Oh, and trapping? Sick, sick, sick.
