Defenders of Wildlife Speaks Up For Idaho Wolves
Defenders of Wildlife is asking supporters to speak up for Idaho wolves. Wildlife Services is beginning its aerial gunning campaign to kill up to 75 wolves in the Lolo area near the Clearwater National Forest in Idaho. Defenders reports the stated reason for the wolf-killing plan is to artificially boost the elk population. Wolves are blamed for the dropping elk numbers in that area even though "elk numbers began decreasing in the area long before wolves made their way there, as suitable elk habitat in the area declined."
