Idaho wants more taxpayer $$ for hunting wolves from helicopters

You can’t make something like this up.

“I know it sounds like a lot of money, but you get in a helicopter in the air to hunt these wolves and it’s expensive.”

This was the rationale offered by an Idaho state legislator for adding yet another $400,000 to the state’s despicable wolf kill fund.

For the third straight year, Idaho officials are funneling state taxpayers’ money for the sole purpose of killing wolves. Even when effective nonlethal tools are available to prevent conflicts between wolves and livestock, Idaho is still choosing to use their money to aerially gun down wolf families on our national forest lands.

Enough is enough. Your urgent support for Defenders of Wildlife will help us protect wolves and other vulnerable wildlife.

Many of these killings are sanctioned to artificially inflate deer and elk numbers!

Idaho’s wolves have been in mortal danger since Congress stripped them of federal protection in 2011. Since Idaho took over their management, the number of breeding pairs, which are necessary to maintain the population, has plummeted andnearly 2,000 wolves have been killed in that state.

Defenders is the only national organization with staff on the ground in Idaho who not only worked to help restore wolves but who are still actively working at the statehouse and state wildlife commission to defend wolves.

Your urgent support will help us fight to end Idaho’s rogue war on wolves. Please help – before it’s too late.

Thank you for all you do!

Sincerely,

Jaime Rappaport Clark Jamie Rappaport Clark
