Gray Wolves in Idaho.

Two years ago, the Idaho legislature passed a new law that makes changes to the way the state manages wolves. These changes are sparking controversy among many conservationists.

In April, J. Dallas Gudgell made a plea to Interior Secretary Deb Haaland to put wolves back on the endangered species list — citing the hundreds of wolves killed in Idaho in 2021 and 2022.
