Idaho seeks middle ground on wolf control

...Lawmakers are debating whether to allocate $2 million of one-time state funds along with $200,000 that would be raised annually by livestock growers and hunters.  Wolf advocates want the bill to pay not just for the killing of wolves, but also for nonlethal measures to keep them from livestock.  Advocates argue that nonlethal methods are more effective and less costly.
