Report Claims More than Half of Idaho’s Wolves Killed
(BOISE) – A recent report released by the Idaho Department of Fish and Game estimates that over half of the Gem State’s wolf population has been eliminated in the last year. The state had an estimated 745 wolves when hunting season began August 30th, with 252 being killed by hunters and another 123 by trapping. Officials say there were only 66 unfilled tags when the season ended for most of the state last week. Idaho allows for the purchase of two wolf tags per calendar year.
