Idaho state trooper to be charged with moose poaching

Cpl. Jeff Jayne, accused, is reported to be another anti-wolf worrier about declining elk, etc-

This is from back in late November, but it is incredible.  There hasn’t been any recent news on this, but here is the article in the Bonner County newspaper. Bonner County, Idaho abuts Canada. I thought the story should get wider distribution.

According to information I’ve received, Jayne was invited to be on a panel after the North Idaho Wolf Alliance showed the Lords of Nature at the Little Panida Theater in Sandpoint. In the subsequent discussion, he was very anti-wolf, repeating all the rhetoric of the far out folks who hate wolves.  Well he has a right to his opinion, of course, but then he shows up with a moose out of season. What is it about these people who say wolves are killing all the game and then they end up getting caught poaching.

Rammell says he was confused by Sportmans Warehouse

Accused elk poacher Rex Rammell has his say in a guest editorial today in Pocatello’s Idaho State Journal.
