Just yesterday good news for coyotes was posted, today there is some good news for wolves.

“Great news for Idaho’s wolves!

Faced with our latest legal challenge, the Idaho Department of Fish and Game just suspended its plan to slaughter 60 percent of wolves in the Middle Fork region of the Frank Church–River of No Return Wilderness beginning this winter.

Over the past year we fought vigorously to stop Idaho’s plan to convert this premier public wilderness into an elk farm for the benefit of hunting outfitters and recreational hunters, destroying the natural balance between predator and prey.

And today—under the pressure of our litigation—the Idaho Department of Fish and Game has agreed to suspend the slaughter of wolves in the wilderness until at least November 1, 2015.”
