New Idaho wolves doing fine!

2/8/96.

First tracking reports of the twenty new wolves
released in Central Idaho last month indicate
they are doing fine.

There has been some worry because warm weather
and rain-on-snow has caused many avalanches, and
the central Idaho wilderness is mostly steep
mountains and V-shaped canyons for miles and miles.

Meanwhile hostility from the most famous member
of the GOP Freshman class, Helen Chenoweth, escala-
ted last week on the floor of the U.S. House when
she gave a twenty-minute speech blasting wolves,
the government's war on the ranchers, and state-
supported environmental "religion."

Her announced opponent for the 1996 election,
Boise attorney, Dan Williams, a Democrat, said
she was a "national embarassment."
