LEWISTON, Idaho. - The first hunter to report a wolf kill in Idaho says he's been flooded with nasty messages since his name hit the national media Wednesday.

Robert Millage says he's been called a wolf murderer, a fat redneck and other names in about 50 phone calls and hundreds of e-mails, the Lewiston Tribune reported. Some suggested that his real estate business will suffer, though Millage suspects he's more likely to gain new clients than lose many.

Millage says he has thick skin. He's alerted local law enforcement and asked them to keep an eye on his business and home, just in case.

The wolf hunting season began Tuesday in Idaho, just months after they were removed from the federal endangered species list. A wolf hunt in Montana is scheduled later this year. The animals remain under federal protection in Wyoming.
