Aerial gunning of wild wolves is underway in Idaho again. And paid by taxpayers like you and me.

USDA’s Wildlife Services is taking to the skies to kill wolves in the remote and rugged areas of the Clearwater National Forest. The state wants to kill wolves to address elk population decline in the Lolo Elk Management Zone. History tells us, however, that the Lolo elk population dropped to historically low levels before wolves were restored to the region. So in an effort to boost elk numbers for hunters, Idaho is scapegoating wolves and ignoring the many factors that affect elk population including human activities, weather, disease, and wildfire.

More.

Do you think this aerial gunning operation is an appropriate use of taxpayer resources?
