Hunting Wolves in Idaho

Shocking though this may be, the governor of Idaho, C.L. "Butch" Otter, has called for hunters to cull their nearly-endangered wolf population down to 100, in a bloodthirsty and callous bid to keep them from attacking elk:

Idaho gov calls for wolf kill

"I'm prepared to bid for that first ticket to shoot a wolf myself," the ironically-named Otter said earlier Thursday during a rally of about 300 hunters. Hey, aren't Otters also endangered?

The biggest problem with the governor's stance is that he is so brazenly bloodthirsty and doesn't mind knocking the population back down to the endangered threshold of 100 animals, from where it recently recovered. Furthermore, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service plans to start removing federal protections from gray wolves in Montana and Idaho in the next few weeks.

I wonder how much of this stuff goes on right under our noses in California.
