Even as Wyoming’s wolf management bill is winning widespread support as it moves through the legislature, a more controversial wolf-management bill before the Idaho legislature was killed in that’s state Senate yesterday. That bill would have allowed residents of Idaho to hunt wolves from powered parachute, helicopter or fixed-wing aircraft and use live bait. The Idaho bill was intended to provide more protection for farmers who are losing livestock in wolf attacks. However, some legislators feared the measure could potentially void the agreement the state has with the federal government allowing the state to manage the predator itself, and would place wolves back under federal protection. Despite approval on second reading, the Idaho Senate voted unanimously to send the bill back to the Natural Resources and Environment Committee which effectively killed the bill.
