When Governor, Sarah Palin had enough and wrote a letter to Congress. If you are getting sucked into the negative spin about her position you need read the letter to get the actual facts.

Mismanagement, Fraud, Abuse? IDF&G
The Truth about our Wildlife Managers' plan to restore "Native" Ecosystems.
John Runft's letter to the Lt. Governor.
This article indicates that as a last ditch effort for survival, Banff elk are domiciling ever closer to civilization. Thanks to this survival adaptation, the Banff Park Game officials have been reduced to “scooping and releasing” calf elk to avoid them becoming unwelcome residents.
This is an art that our own Fish and Game officials may soon have to learn. I can only imagine the next step, first try “scoop and release”, then when that effort eventually fails, what the hell – just release farm raised elk as that should maintain the hungry predator base just fine.

"Canadian Gray Wolf Introduction into
West Yellowstone." The Real Story you
won't see from the Press of the so called
Gov. Otter's Letter
It would appear many still don't believe there is a problem. In the last Idaho Legislative session, legislation was floating to introduce an extremely important resolution.
If passed, this Bill would have given the Governor the support of the Idaho Legislature to respond in the best interests of the citizens of Idaho regarding any contingency that may occur resulting from this wolf "recovery" process!
The Bill would have given the Governor support to declare a State of Emergency to effectively deal with the Idaho Canadian Gray wolf population as necessary to protect citizens and children, to reduce the growing public safety and health risk associated with wolf borne disease, and to reduce and control unacceptable livestock and ungulate depredation. It would have given the Governor the legislative support enabling him to take the actions necessary to protect the citizens and property rights of the people of our State.
But Idaho Governor Butch Otter Backs Down.
