Wolves are beautiful creatures that should be protected, but a plan by one state could potentially harm these majestic animals. The United States Forest Service and the Idaho Fish and Game Department have been sued by the Western Watersheds Project, Defenders of Wildlife and some other environmental groups. In the latest update about this issue, the Idaho Fish and Game representatives have filed a declaration saying they won't move forward with their plan immediately.
The government entity was going to have wolves killed by using a hired hunter. The opponents of the plan say that the Wilderness Act, which is a federal act, was violated when the hired hunter was allowed to use a cabin and air strip by the U.S. Forest Service.
