15 wolves and counting…

HOWLColorado : NewsIdaho/Washington TV station reports more wolves killed. Interesting example of poorly balanced news reporting.

BOISE, Idaho. – Idaho’s wolf kill tally is growing. Idaho Fish and Game officials say hunters so far have bagged 15 of the predators.
KBCI-TV in Boise reports that only one of the kills since the season opened Sept. 1 was illegal. In that case, a man was accused by witnesses of shooting a wolf in an area off-limits to hunting wolves.
Fish and Game Spokesman Ed Mitchell says the number of wolf kills could increase in coming weeks as Idaho’s big game hunting seasons open for business and wolf hunting expands October 1 to include every state hunting district.
Mitchell says the most recent kills were reported Sunday and Monday.
An ongoing court case challenges the legality of the wolf hunts in Montana and Idaho, but a judge earlier this month decided not to intervene in the hunts.
