Senator Jeff Siddoway (R) recently introduced Senate Bill 1305 to Idaho State Legislature. 1305 would allow any live stock owner and/or his employees to hunt wolves in a variety of ways.
According to The Wildlife News, Siddoway had this to say about his proposed piece of legislation: “You can basically go after them [wolves] by any means available.”
You can read the full text of the law here: http://www.legislature.idaho.gov/legislation/2012/ S1305.pdf
Under the current wording the law would allow for livestock owners to hunt from motorized vehicles powered parachutes, helicopters, fixed wing airplanes and at any time day or night— without a permit.
These hunts must occur within 36 hours of a suspected livestock or domestic animal being molested or attacked. The law doesn’t not require the landowner to prove that a wolf or wolves attacked his animals.
Any wolves taken under this law would have to be turned over to the state within 72 hours of being killed and would remain the property of the state.
