In Idaho, hundreds of people have just bought dirt-cheap wolf-killing permits for only $12, and since the beginning of September they've already wiped out 14 of these intelligent, beautiful animals. They have permission to kill at least another 179 this season.
Since wolves are highly social, each death could shatter a wolf family, break up a breeding pair or orphan a litter of pups. If Idaho continues to kill at this rate, wolves may soon be wiped out in the state for the second time in a century.
Idaho's vicious hunt is being held up as a national model by extremist wolf-haters in Congress, too. They've worked up a cynical backdoor strategy of sliding in amendments to "must-pass" budget bills that will allow as many as a half-dozen other states to follow in Idaho's bloody footsteps. They want to bring Idaho-style wolf-butchery to the Great Lakes and Wyoming and even the Pacific Northwest, creating an open season on wolves wherever they roam.
