In addition to traps with live bait, the bill would let livestock owners whose animals are molested by wolves shoot the wolves from motorized vehicles, powered parachutes, helicopters or fixed-wing planes, by night or day, using rifles, pistols, shotguns, or crossbows, night scopes, and electronic calls.
The bill does not clearly define "live bait" and is without parameters.

Tell Idaho it has gone too far with it's wolf management program and that they do not need an additional bill as the federal government has already allowed Idaho to hunt wolves.
