Ketchum to state: Don’t kill Blaine wolves

Ketchum became the first Idaho municipality to separate itself from state policies on wolf management Monday night following a unanimous vote by the City Council to advocate nonlethal deterrents to wolf predation on livestock. The council passed a resolution asking the state government to recognize the importance of recreation, tourism and wildlife to Blaine County’s economy, and not expand lethal control of wolves there.  It asks that trapping, snares and aerial shooting of wolves be prohibited in the county.
