When the Wolf was introduced in the lower forty eight states.

After the wolf was nearly wiped out in the lower 48 states,The wolves in Idaho were said to be endangered in 1974 under the U.S.Governments Endangered Species Act. Then the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's 1987 recovery plan for wolves in the Northern Rocky Mountains also decided to reintroducing them into central Idaho in 1995 and 1996.
Now we have a wolf season and it did not take very long to see how fast wolves multiply.Another problem facing humans,livestock and birds is these wolves carry a very contagious disease called Hydatid,which is a tapeworm and is deposited onto the ground through defecating.
Something the government did not mention when they introduced the wolf back into the lower 48.
The thing is agents in Alaska and Canada knew and told the government about the hydatid disease,but to no avail did the government take heed.
Just remember if you shoot a wolf,wear plastic gloves of some sort to skin it and don't pack it out on your back,unless it is in a blood proof container.

Wolf season is over in the western states..

Well hunters ,if you did not bag your wolf,you are now out of luck.The season has past and the wolf can run free for another season.
The total count on bagged wolves at last past was 185.That left 35 not getting tagged in Idaho.
Now we wait and see what happens this year as the animal rights people start their lawsuits to stop hunting the wolf.
You can purchase wolf tags now at one of the sporting goods store outlets and if there isn't a hunt this year,you will get a refund of your tag money back.So don't wait and see what happens with the season or you might not get a tag.
Good luck hunting.
