Unbelievably, the Idaho Senate is considering Senate Bill (S.B.) 1305, which would permit ranchers to kill wolves by using live animals—including dogs and cats—as bait! Making matters worse, aerial gunning from powered parachutes and ultralight airplanes would be allowed, as would bowhunting. These methods commonly leave animals maimed! Wolves in this region are already being hunted, but the tactics proposed in S.B. 1305 are exceedingly cruel. This bill passed out of the subcommittee and is now in the hands of the full Senate.
Your voice is needed today!
Please politely urge Idaho state senators to oppose S.B. 1305. E-mail addresses and phone numbers for Idaho senators can be found here
