Idaho House declares wolves a "disaster emergency"
Edited on Wed Apr-06-11 12:43 PM by MisterP
The Idaho House on Tuesday approved a measure that declares the state's wolves a "disaster emergency" -- akin to a flood or wildfire -- and gives the governor broad powers to eliminate them.
...
The legislation says the state's estimated 800 wolves are compromising public safety, destroying herds of big-game animals like elk and damaging hunting and agricultural industries.
Under existing Idaho law, a state of emergency allows the governor to marshal his police powers to lessen the impact of a declared threat.
"Folks, there is an emergency," House Speaker Lawerence Denney said during debate on the bill.

2. Maybe we should release some rabid wolves
in the Idaho capital building, that might fix some of the problems.

5. What IS it with ReThuglicans and their "Blood-lust"?
Maybe they will enlist the expertise of Sarah-fucking-Palin. She has lots of experience in slaughtering animals.
The same Palin that as governor,offered a reward for a wolf's severed front paw and encouraged sniping them from helicopters.
The same Palin that said, "Oh, I like animals alright....on my plate right next to my mashed potatoes."

6. hilarious (in a sadly ignorant sort of way)
"destroying herds of big-game animalss..."

How on earth did elk manage to survive all these millenia with thousands of wolves running around?

8. pot, kettle
There's only one species I'd call "disaster emergency" and it's not wolves.
