Idaho: Ranchers debate the effectiveness of non-lethal deterrents on wolves
HAILEY, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) —The new wolf law went into effect earlier this month, and it allows increased hunting opportunities on private land year-round, which has some ranchers optimistic it will lead to a reduction in livestock depredation by wolves. However, some in the Wood River Valley feel the law is an overreach and there is a better way.
Brian Bean is the owner of Lava Lake Lamb out of Blaine County, and he said he is no stranger to livestock depredation by wolves. His operation had some tough years in 2003 and 2004.
