Idaho: No Animals Used as Live Bait
Idaho Senate Bill S1305 passed committee and will go to the Senate for a vote as early February 29, 2012. This bill allows for slaughter of wolves found molesting livestock by any means. It specifically allows for baiting wolves with live animals. State Senator Jeff Siddoway said "even dogs" could be used as bait.
Using any sentient being as bait to kill another is cruel and inhumane. It causes undue stress to the bait animal and puts them in harms way to be killed by wolves before a gunman kills the wolf.

We the undersigned, respectfully ask you do not pass Senate Bill 1305.
The use of live animals as bait - including possibly dogs - is cruel and inhumane. It does not belong in the 21 century and certainly should not be condoned by politicians.
Thank you for your consideration and in taking the time to read this petition.
