Domestic dogs, sheep and goats are some of the examples cited of what could be used as live bait. Idaho Senate Bill 1305 came before the Senate Resources and Environmental Committee for a hearing Monday, Feb 20.

According the The Billings [Montana] Gazette: "The northern Rockies--mainly Idaho, Montana and Wyoming- -now are home to about 1,650 gray wolves, which is more than five times the previously set federal benchmark of 300 wolves for them to be consid- ered a recovered species and removed from fed- era] protection. Howeverl some environmental groups believe they need anywhere from 2,000 to 5,000 wolves on the landscape, including in Oregon, Washington and Utah, to ensure genetic diversity."
