Helicopters vs. wolves
Idaho F&G had some kind of deal with US F&WS to try hunting wolves from a helicopter. The hunt was out of Lewiston, and given the level of concern it was probably targeting wolves in the Lolo Zone.
The story is kind of short on facts. The eradicaion crew got "at least 5" wolves, but at high cost. The article doesn't tell you how much it cost, how long the operation lasted, or who paid for it. The article does tell you they are not going to continue ....
How much did they spend to kill those 5 wolves?$5,000? $10,000? $20,000? It's worth reading the reader comments that follow the article.
