    It seems like this is the only way to go. Remember, only use a shotgun! No ballistic marks.

    Wolves in Idaho: Shoot, Shovel, and Shut Up
    By Report by J.J. Johnson

    Okay, Real Idahoans, who’s got the shotgun?
    Seems someone has sent another soul to gray wolf heaven without the blessings of the U. S. Government, and they are not too happy about it.

    Idaho City, Idaho - U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service law enforcement agents confirm one waxed wolf near Idaho City. The wolf appeared to have died from a shotgun blast with BB-size shot.

    Your tax dollars at work: Mr. Fed knew this wolf was toast, since it had a radio collar. When the thing sent out a mortality signal, they knew someone bagged’em. Age 2 - known as B-131, grouped together with Idaho’s “Wolf Pack†by your ever so loving federal government.

    No, we don’t bother placing radio emitters on cows, chickens, horses, and other livestock these unwelcome creatures are known to attack, because after all, wolves have more rights than humans.

    The dead animal was found near Crooked River/Forest Road 348 about 20 miles northeast of Idaho City. Investigating officials believe this kill shot occurred some time near Memorial Day weekend.

    More of your tax dollars at work: the dead predator’s carcass had to be hauled all the way to Ashland, Oregon just so more government employees can do an autopsy. Not to mention a team sent out to investigate the heroic action, and get this: a $5000 reward to whoever snitches on the guilty party.

    Service special agent Scott Kabasa noted, "We encourage citizens who may have information about this case, or any other illegal wolf killings, to please contact U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service law enforcement immediately."

    By the way, offing an animal protected under the Endangered Species Act is punishable by a fine of up to $100,000 and one year in jail, so don’t get caught.

    And as for the next person that bags a wolf, do your duty as a Real American and bury the remains.

    Unless you're in a helicopter, in which case it's the kangeroos that shoot back. :D
