Green Vegans has researched Idaho statues, codes, and regulations

- The “First Annual 2-Day Coyote and Wolf Hunting Derby” is a commercial hunt prohibited by Idaho regulations;

- It violates the 15–hunter maximum participation rule;

- It violates the IDFG Commission thirteen year wildlife policy: “However, the Department will not support any contests or similar activities involving the taking of predators which may portray hunting in an unethical fashion, devalue the predator, and which may be offensive to the general public. The Department opposes use of bounties as a predator control measure.”

1. Signed

And posted on FB.

What is it with the gun-happy lately that they want all wild canids dead? I even read a story where one Wolf hunter was so trigger happy that he killed a man's Malmute, with the owner present and screaming for him to stop after the first shot.

2. thanks


I don't know the motives of these 2 guys who started the derby, but I know they don't tell the truth. They said part of the reason they are killing the wolves is because they carry a parasite that can infect humans, when in fact that is false. The parasite mainly affects sheep.

I would guess they don't have much conscience about killing animals, and any opportunity to do so, they will.
