Deputies Kill Wolf in Elk City
Idaho Department of Fish and Game has authorized the Idaho County sheriff's department to kill wolves in Elk City Township. The deputies were able to do just that this weekend when a resident reported a wolf in their backyard. Elk City Deputy Mike Chlebowski shot at the young female wolf Saturday night, but only injured it, the wolf ran off into the woods. Sunday two deputies tracked down the injured wolf and killed it. Sheriff Doug Giddings told the Lewiston Tribune that he believes there are too many wolves in the region and they've moved into Elk City. From The Missoulian.
