Wolf Tag Sales in Idaho are Brisk as U.S. District Judge Sets Hearing for Wolf Hunt Challenge



August 24, 2009 - As of 4:45PM, 4,196 wolf hunting tags were sold in Idaho giving hunters a shot at up to 220 of Idaho's wolves. U.S. District Judge Donald Malloy has granted wolf advocates a hearing on their request for an injunction to stop wolf hunting in Idaho and Montana. Attorneys for Earthjustice, the group representing the 13 groups challenging the hunt and the federal government will get three hours to make their cases in court on Monday August 31st, the day before hunting was scheduled to begin in Idaho.

I sure hope they can stop this before too many wolves are slaughtered.

I think Judge Malloy will issue an injunction before to much damage is done. The state-by-state approach to delisting wolves in the northern Rockies shouldn't fly under the ESA. My fingers are crossed!

Thanks Kelly and Stay tuned on the WCC's new Facebook page!
