The killing of wolves in Idaho began last week ago. Idaho has already confirmed three wolf kills.
In March, Interior Secretary Salazar approved the Bush Administration's discredited plan to eliminate Endangered Species Act protections for wolves in Idaho and Montana.
So, Idaho will now slaughter 220 wolves this year in the first-ever state regulated hunt of gray wolves in the continental United States. Montana plans to slaughter 75 wolves starting in October.
The very species that was brought back from the brink of extinction under the protection of the EPA is now on its way out again. No other endangered species has ever been delisted (protections removed) at such a low population level and then immediately hunted to even lower unsustainable levels.
This could be the worst wolf massacre in the Lower 48 United States since the 1930s. Hundreds of defenseless wolves will be shot, with many surviving wolf pups left to starve to death.
