From the Seattle Times:
_It was the first day Idaho wolf tags went on sale for a hunt slated to start next Tuesday. By mid-afternoon, the state was reporting about 4,000 tags sold, as hunters motivated by curiosity, novelty – and in some cases frustration with predators’ impact on wildlife and livestock – shelled out $11.50 for a wolf tag. . . .
It’s still uncertain if hunts will even proceed.
Thirteen environmental groups that have sued to overturn the federal delisting will get a hearing next Monday – one day before Idaho’s hunt would begin – where U.S. District Judge Donald Molloy in Missoula will hear their arguments on why a wolf hunt should be halted._
