Officials in Idaho County want Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter to declare an ongoing disaster that will allow wolves to be shot on sight, citing attacks on livestock and wildlife.
County commissioners declared a local disaster Thursday. The governor's office was aware of the county's move but had not seen it and couldn't immediately comment, said Otter spokesman Jon Hanian.

the Canadian Grey Wolf, a super sized predator hunting in super sized packs that evolved to chase caribou herds for hundreds of miles.
Good. Wolves are a menace if their numbers are not monitored and controlled.
they are thick and need to be thinned out. Farmer’s and Rancher’s need to protect their livestock. These enviromentalist don’t know their ass from a hole in the ground.
A disaster emergency, as defined in Section 46-1002 (3) and (4), Idaho Code, is in existence as a result of the 1995-96 introduction of the Canadian Gray Wolves, causing vast devastation of the social culture, economy and natural resources of Idaho County.
Little red riding hood is at code red
Ahh,the 3 S’s
Where’s that lady that shoots them from a chopper????
There is a reason they were hunted to near extinction.
To bad we cant turn them loose on liberals alone.
What is wrong with making wolves extinct in the wild? They serve no modern purpose, the only thing they do is thin the herds of animals that man likes to hunt, nurture or grow into steaks. Evolution demands that we as the top predator in the world, hunt them until gone.
We just spend a month in Idaho. The folks there are incensed at the situation. One Canadian gray wolf kills and eats 40 ungulates (hoofed animals) per year and kills another 40 just for the sport of it. The are decimating the elk, antelope and deer herds and also endangering moose. It’s getting to a crisis stage.
8 mexican grey wovles were introduced into SE AZ by liberal hand wringers.
Within 6 months all had been killed for attacks on people or pets or livestock.
Federal implementation of wolf introduction has violated the Endangered Species act (ESA) on virtually every count. Dr. Richard Mitchell, PhD., one of the original authors of the ESA, traveled from Washington, D.C., on January 11, 2000, to testify in Billings [Montana] at the Predator Management Symposium.
Dr. Mitchell stated to an audience of several hundred, including Sen. Conrad Burns, that it was a violation of the ESA to dump the Canadian Grey wolf on top of the Rocky Mountain wolf.
They kill for fun?!!!
I thought they were noble spiritual critters communing with Indian princesses
The entire state should declare itself a wolf disaster area. Last year, in my area of the state, it was the worst elk hunting season that anyone can remember. The so-called experts do not have a clue what the wolf population is.
Good Lord! Do these people even hear what they say?
But, but...they’re so pretty.
The wolves also easily out breed the elk, so the wolf population is exploding.
Capture them and turn them loose in DC!
