El proyecto de ley de Idaho busca crear más oportunidades para matar lobos

Idaho lawmakers are paving the way to create more opportunities to kill Idaho wolves year-round.

The Idaho Senate Resources and Environment Committee voted yesterday to forward S. 1247, a measure introduced by Republican Sen. Bert Brackett. The bill would designate “wolf-free” and “chronic depredation” zones where any licensed hunter with a wolf tag can shoot an unlimited number of wolves year-round.

The proposal also includes language saying that the new zones would remain in effect “as long as there are more than 20 packs, consisting of at least 200 wolves, in the state of Idaho. “

In accordance with Idaho’s Wolf Management Plan, wolf management will revert to the same provisions that were in effect to recover the wolf population prior to delisting if the wolf population falls below 10 packs.

Desde que se levantaron las protecciones federales para los lobos de Idaho en 2011, el estado ha dejado en claro sus intenciones de “manejar” a los lobos con mano dura. Gem State no solo sanciona sólidas temporadas de caza/captura de lobos trofeo, sino que también estableció una "Junta de control de depredación de lobos" estatal en la que Idaho presupuesta $400,000 anualmente para exterminar lobos, a menudo mediante disparos aéreos, e incluso en áreas silvestres.
