Idaho’s wolf hunt on for now

Boise, Idaho (AP) – Idaho’s wolf hunt is on – at least for
now.

The Idaho Department of Fish and Game is overseeing hunts in
selected parts of the state Tuesday, the first day of the wolf
hunting season.

Hunters could be stopped in their tracks if a federal judge in
Montana sides with environmentalists seeking to stop the hunts.

U.S. District Judge Donald Molloy is considering a motion for an
injunction sought by groups opposed to the hunts in Idaho and
Montana.

The wolf hunting season in Montana is scheduled to open Sept.
15. Hunters began buying Montana wolf tags Monday.

Idaho’s season is limited for now to a handful of districts in
the central and northern mountains.

Idaho set a quota of 220 wolves this season as part of its plan
for managing the population, now estimated at more than 800.
