Wolf Recovery Update

In 1995, 29 Rocky Mountain Grey Wolves were reintroduced in Idaho and Yellowstone National Park as part of the Fish and Game's recovery plan. The terms surrounding the reintroduction of wolves in Idaho prompted the Idaho Farm Bureau to sue claiming the plan violated the Endangered Species Act. In a recent decision a judge ruled in favor of the Farm Bureau and ordered the removal of wolves from Idaho. Joan Cartan-Hansen and her guests talk about the lawsuit and subsequent decision and what the next steps will be in the ongoing wolf debate.
