Idaho Fish and Game turns to hired hunter

In the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness, a wolf researcher and filmmaker sees a step back in the animal’s recovery process.  Idaho’s Department of Fish and Game has hired a hunter to eliminate two wolf packs…”I can understand a reasonable hunting season on wolves, they are considered a game animal in Idaho,” said Isaac Babcock, of McCall.  “But when Fish and Game hires a bounty hunter to go live in designated wilderness in a Forest Service cabin with the goal of eliminating entire wolf packs – something seems terribly wrong with that.”
