Idaho Fish and Game in the spotlight for wolves

During a recent elk capture operation in the Frank Church/River of No Return Wilderness, an Idaho Fish and Game crew captured and placed tracking collars on four wolves. Fish and Game had told the Forest Service it would not collar wolves during the project. The wolves were released unharmed…the error was due to a breakdown in internal communications…Fish and Game crews were capturing and placing radio collars on elk in the wilderness after coordinating with the Forest Service.
