A Judge"s Order

Some feed back from an Alliance to save Wolves.
On September 9th, U.S. District Judge Molloy ruled that the wolf hunt in Montana and Idaho can proceed.
The reasoning was that Earthjustice did not show that irreparable harm would occur if hunting was allowed for one or two years, and that is the required legal basis for issuing an injunction.

The good news is that the Judge agrees with another argument that the federal delisting of wolves was likely illegal because it failed to include Wyoming and so constitutes a decision based on political-boundaries rather than science.
Earthjustice is expected to proceed through the legal system to follow-up on this aspect of the case next.
The bad news is that this suggests that all the feds need is to have Wyoming adopt Idaho or Montana’s program.
The good news is that this suggests that the feds would first have to re-list wolves as an endangered species in order to then go thru the process of legally de-listing them with the necessary changes needed to include Wyoming (but who knows how such things play out).
The wolves, however, have apparently heard the news and hunters are reporting they are not having much luck finding them (to date anyway).
As I have stated before,wolves are a lot harder to find when the snow gets deep.

The Lolo and Selway packs are the ones that need to be hunted but the snow pack has forced hunters to look elsewhere in Idaho.

Use these guide lines when skinning and transporting your wolf home;

When skinning an animal use these common sense precautions:
Wear rubber (latex) gloves.

Minimize contact with animal fluids, brain and spinal tissues.
Wash hands and knives thoroughly after you field dress.

It's legal to harvest a radio-collared wolf, but the collar must be returned to Fish and Game. Please don't cut the collar belting.

Some wolves suffer from mange-a parasitic infestation caused by mites that results in the loss of fur.

Hunters should avoid skinning a mangy wolf.

Tag the animal and report the kill to Fish and Game.

Hunters can expect a field-dressed adult wolf pelt to weigh about 15 pounds.

An early autumn wolf pelt won't be quite as prime as a late season winter hide, but most will have thick and ample fur for tanning.

The wolf hunt in Idaho has produced 140 wolves harvested with only 80 left for the hunter to bag before season ends March 31,2010
With the snow it will get more difficult to bag a wolf unless they the wolf sttart killing rancher's livestock.

137 wolves have been harvested in Idaho and there are 83 more tags to be filled before the end of the season.
