SPOKANE, Washington — Wildlife officials say poachers took some newborn wolf pups from their Idaho den and killed them.

The Spokesman-Review reports (http://bit.ly/29qfwzw) the pups were just a few weeks old.

Authorities believe poachers killed them sometime during the week of May 16 in the Idaho Panhandle National Forest. The den was near a heavily used recreation area.

Defenders of Wildlife regional representative Suzanne Asha Stone says it’s illegal to hunt the pups on public land, but some private land has a year-round hunting season with no age limits. Her organization has lobbied for changes to protect pups.

The Idaho Department of Fish and Game says those regulations help landowners address wolf-livestock conflicts and wolves that get habituated to people.

  1. The wolf haters have always done that. If the good old boys didn’t set the den on fire with the pups in it, they were luckier than some
    Human treatment of wolves and their torture seems absolutely psychopathic
