Idaho Commission Resolves To Fight Wolf Ruling

Posted: Updated:

IDAHO FALLS, Idaho (AP) - The Idaho Fish and Game Commission says it will pursue all legal options to restore the state's authority over wolf management.

The commission passed a resolution Monday that also finds fault with a federal judge's Aug. 5 ruling that restored endangered species protections to wolves in Idaho and Montana.

The commission wants Gov. C.L. "Butch" Otter to reach an agreement with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to establish Idaho as having the lead role in managing the wolves. Toby Boudreau, regional wildlife manager, says a similar agreement was in place before federal protections were lifted last year and wolf management was turned over to those two states.

Boudreau says the commission also will continue to seek a hunting season for wolves this fall.
