Idaho officials kill 19 wolves to boost elk herds

…The Idaho Department of Fish and Game on Monday announced the killings carried out last month by the U.S. Department of Agriculture's Wildlife Services in the Lolo Hunting Zone…Experts say a changing habitat to denser forests less suitable for elk is the primary factor but wolves are preventing elk from rebounding.
