Idaho's New Stomach-turning Wolf Slaughter Record
Center for Biological Diversity - September, 18, 2020
Nearly three dozen wolf pups, likely four to six weeks old, were killed in Idaho in just 12 months.

It was a record-breaking year for wolf killing — and the bloodthirst for wolf hunts is only getting worse.
Idaho is Exhibit A in what could go wrong for wolves if they lose Endangered Species Act protection — a move, by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, that is "imminent" and likely by the end of the year.

New roads have been bulldozed into the forest and activists found a 631-year-old stump felled in road construction. Green Diamond is already doing active clearcutting in the area and could start logging the ancient forest any day. The area we have dubbed ‘The Wynoochee Remnant’ is habitat to...
