IDAHO -- "Right in the middle of the wolf hunt and in the zone where there is the highest quota, Wildlife Services took to the air this week in their gunships and blasted away the long-standing Basin Butte Pack at Stanley, Idaho. This is one of 26 wolf packs Wildlife Service has labeled as a "chronic depredating" pack, which seems to mean a pack that at one or more times killed some domestic livestock.

It doesn’t mean killed recently, however. All the livestock left the area for the winter in October.

The real hunt is actually the slaughter, mostly from the air, that might now be underway. There won’t be news releases. It will begin silently in the winter and there are really no quotas, no end of the season, and no limit on the methods — no fair chase. They may well be denning pups this late spring, even putting out poison if Idaho’s wolves continue to be resourceful. It is a 21st Century high tech killing machine against the spirit of the wolf, fueled by 19th Century beliefs on behalf of the state’s livestock nobility."

There are no media reports as of yet.  There is no wolf management report covering this control.  Lynne Stone's Twitter page is set to "This person has protected their tweets."  Certainly, she is flattened by this.  I feel helpless up against what is sheer insanity.Broken HeartProtest

I don't know why this surprises anyone.  It is a war against the Wolves and they won't be happy until they are gone again.  Livestock trucked into their territory and they are labeled chronic depredators? Malloy made a huge error in letting this hunt proceed there was enough senseless killing of Wolves without it. Mad
