Legal Challenge to Idaho’s Wildlife Killing Contest

Originally Published on the ECOreport

Legal Challenge to Idaho’s Wildlife-killing Contest is a podcast with Amy Atwood, Endangered Species Legal Director, Senior Attorney, The Center of Biological Diversity.


The Bureau of Land Management has just issued a five year permit, so that Salmon, Idaho, can hold its’ wildlife killing contest on public land.  Five hundred hunters, some as young as 10, are expected to take part.

This has prompted the Center for Biological Diversity, Western Watersheds Project, and Project Coyote to ask a judge to stop this event. She describes this struggle for social acceptance of wolves in the podcast below.
