Idaho's war on wildlife has reached barbaric new levels.
Ninety percent of the state's wolves could be killed off — and endangered species like grizzlies and lynxes are also at risk from increased traps and snares.
So we're in court to save them.

Idaho is becoming ground zero for the war on wolves — and other imperiled species could also fall like dominoes.
Wolf-killing is now allowed year-round in nearly all of the state, even when wolves are denning with cubs. And there are no limits on how many wolves one person can kill.
The state has approved the use of more painful strangulation snares, which could also harm or kill federally protected bears and lynxes.
Idaho will pay out more than half a million dollars to kill wolves — and private contractors will do the dirty work.
Our latest lawsuit challenges these cruel laws.
We also filed for a temporary restraining order to halt all wolf trapping in grizzly bear habitat.
The state has a legal and moral responsibility to protect wildlife like bears and lynxes — not make it easier for them to be killed as collateral damage in its vengeful war on wolves.
We can't fight the heartbreaking extinction crisis if keystone species like gray wolves aren't part of the rich, biodiverse ecosystems where they evolved.
These animals have a right to live without the constant threat of gunshots, traps and destruction.
As long as states like Idaho make it easier to kill wildlife, we'll keep going to court to fight back.
This is the work we do every day, and we need you with us.
