Multiple Groups File Lawsuit Against Idaho Law That Could Kill 90 Percent of State’s Wolves
A lawsuit was filed in Idaho on Monday to block a law signed in May by Republican Gov. Brad Little that over a dozen environmental groups say could lead to the killing of up to 90 percent of the state’s 1,500 wolves through expansions to trapping and snaring regulations.
The law took effect July 1 and allows for more methods to kill wolves across the state including traps and snares, which the groups filing the lawsuit argue could also injure or kill federally protected lynx and grizzly bears in the state, according to The Associated Press.
