This is the kind of thing that makes me ashamed to be a human. The idiots in our legislature do lots of things that make me embarrassed for Idaho, but this is a new low:

Has this jerk lost his freaking mind?! Leave the dog in the woods so the cries will lure in the wolves to be shot?! Please tell me this doesn't have a chance to actually pass!

They should stake him out--just until the wolves start circling. Then he'll see how it feels...

Tdna, I'll post the link on the Idaho News thread on the Idaho Forum. This is outrageous.

Angry repugnant

This Idaho state legislator is a real azzhat for proposing such a thing. His office should be innundated with calls. There is a reason they make electronic varmit calls. No live bait required.

I'd better not say everything I'd really like to about this guy. Just that there's something very wrong with someone who thinks like that. Sick is an understatement.

I have no love for uncontrolled feral cats and dogs as they kill millions wildlife species every year in the US.

However what this dingdong is proposing is just idiotic.

They voted to send the bill to the floor with a recommendation to pass it. I hope with all my heart that this blows up in their faces and results in wolves being relisted in Idaho under the Endangered Species Act. I am so disgusted right now.
