I watched 2 wolves circling a deer in our field this morning about 75 yards or less from my front door. I'm a woman and don't hunt, but I do target practice with my husband. Is it legal for me to shoot a wolf to protect my animals, horses, mules, and dog, without a license and tag in Idaho. I would hate to watch as they took down one of our animals and couldn't do anything about it? I live in Idaho. Thank you so much for any answers.
you release the official count at 740 + animals, but reports of some employees place the number much higher. So what is a better estimation?
With that total protection ( ESA) in place what would the population be in 20 years ? In Idaho? Inthe Yellowstone ecosystem?
What is the daily food requirements for a mature wolf ,? In pounds of meat ? For an average pack that is how many deer,elk, etc. a day, week , etc.?
If my memory serves, there were native wolves to Idaho before the introduction of Canadian wolves, correct? If so how many were there and is there a viable population now?
