Of course, if wolves attack cattle because they have run across dead cattle and got a taste, they are shot by Wildlife Services.
Now Idaho Fish and Game Commission is happy to let wolves become habituated to baits so they can be easily “hunted.” Those wolves that don’t take the set baits will be much more likely to attack cattle in the future. This method of hunting then means more cattle will be killed. What a self-perpetuating system! Are the commissioners just stupid or intentionally setting up conflicts?
