Wolf Control Bill Fails In Idaho House Of Representatives


By Brandon Redmond

Boise, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) The Idaho House of Representatives voted thirty five to thirty three against shifting money from hunting licenses to compensate ranchers for livestock losses and fund state efforts to kill wolves.

The Idaho Department of Fish and Game along with hunters had objections against the bill. The bill would have raised hunting tags for wolves by five dollars and twenty five cents making wolf hunting tags fifteen dollars.

Eight dollars of that would have gone into a wolf depredation account. Half of the money would have gone to wolf control and the other half to livestock owners who lost animals due to wolf attacks.
