"Idaho Resumes Hunting Of Gray Wolves"

"Wolf hunting season opened Tuesday in the state of Idaho.

Just four months ago, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service released the gray wolf from federal protection.

Now, Idaho says hunters can kill about a quarter of the estimated 850 wolves in the state. But conservation groups are hoping a federal judge in Montana will declare an injunction to temporarily stop the hunt."
