Ecological illiteracy soars in Idaho aswolf control bill goes to guv

I don't think the killing of Gray Wolves in Idaho has anything at all to do with legitimate wildlife management.It has plenty to do, however, with the revenue from the sale of wolf-hunting licenses and tags and just pure unabashed hatred for the predator. It's the same attitude that lead, more than a century ago, to the near extirpation of wolves in North America south of the border with Canada.
A new name for Idaho Fish and Game: Idaho Shoot-Predators-on-Sight Agency. Here's Idaho Statesman reporter Rocky Barker's blog posting about the wolf-control bill just sent to the Idaho governor for his signature.
