Farm Bureau Delegates Amend Wolf Policy

BOISE – Delegates to the 71st Annual Idaho Farm Bureau Convention amended the organization’s policy on wolves this week supporting a predator classification.

Delegates expressed frustration and skepticism with the federal government’s wolf management plans but did retain language supporting a wolf hunting season should the predator be removed from the Endangered Species list. The delegation, with representation from 37 county Farm Bureaus also adopted language encouraging Idaho to invoke 10th Amendment state sovereignty rights over wolf management on all state and private lands.
