Bill Will Allow Using Dogs To Lure Wolves To Be Killed
Idaho is considering this sick possibility

Just as I was preparing for a nice relaxing evening I received an email telling me that there is a bill pending in Idaho that will allow ranchers to use live bait, including dogs, to lure in wolves so they can be killed. For a summary of articles about this sickest of sick ideas, please click here and here

You can register your point of view (nicely, please)  but time is of the essence. Idaho Senate Agricultural Affairs Chair Jeff Siddoway can be reached at (208) 332-1330 or by email here. He will be in his office until 10 a.m. (mountain time) on Monday morning (today) before he adjourns for meetings. The committee is meeting at 1:30 p.m. that (this) afternoon to discuss the legislation.
