"A federal judge on Thursday reinstated protections for wolves in Montana and Idaho, saying the government made a political decision in removing the protections from just two of the states where Northern Rocky Mountain wolves roam.

The decision puts a halt to wolf hunts in Montana and Idaho planned for this fall. Montana wildlife regulators last month set the wolf-hunt quota at 186, more than doubling last year's number, with the aim of reducing the state's wolf population.

U.S. District Judge Donald Molloy in Missoula said in his ruling that the entire region's wolf population either must be listed as an endangered species or removed from the list, but the protections for the same population can't be different for each state."

I'm glad to hear that the hunt will not go on this year but I remain skeptical as well to the well-being of the Wolf in that hostile territory.Watching from the sidelines

Me, too, Nakoowolf.  I do not understand how anyone can manage anything by killing.  That's ignorant.  We have seen ecological studies done that show we have been wrong.  If there isn't a full understanding of wolves' behaviors or ecological roles yet, how in the world will you ever know if you kill wolves?  Heck, we are witness to articles where "officials" cannot even tell if it is a wolf.   

News Release from Biological Diversity (Aug. 6, 2010)

Robert Klavins of Oregon Wild said: “We welcome today’s decision, but it’s not the end of the story. Oregon’s wolf population stands at less than 20, and this year’s state-sanctioned wolf hunt proves that federal protections are needed. We hope we have learned some important lessons and will use this reprieve to strengthen protections for wolves in Oregon and move beyond the frontier attitude that shooting wolves is the only way to manage them and prevent conflict. We look forward to the day when we can celebrate the legitimate delisting of wolves secure in the knowledge they are truly on their way to recovery and won’t simply be put back in the gun sights."

“Wolves are once again protected in the northern Rockies. This is great news for the wolves. Montana and Idaho had plans to allow hunts this fall, hundreds of wolves were scheduled to be killed and now those plans are halted,” said Earthjustice attorney Doug Honnold.
