Wolf pack

JOSEPH, Ore. — State biologists have identified a new wolf pack in northeastern Oregon.

Biologists spotted two gray-colored adult wolves and their litter of five pups last Saturday in the Upper Minam River drainage in the Eagle Cap Wilderness.

Pity the foolhardy wolf that gets in Liam Neeson's way. At least, that's the primary message in the trailer for the latest entry in this most curious period of the Oscar-nominee's career, which finds him more often than not furrowing his brow in anger and then beating the source of his ire to a bloody pulp.

Idaho Fish and Game

Just as in neighboring Oregon, ranchers are uneasy about how the payments will work in reality.

The Idaho Department of Fish and Game is developing a proposal that could make this year's wolf hunting season even more controversial. It would allow wolf hunting in most parts of Idaho without a cap on the total number of wolves being killed. As correspondent Jessica Robinson reports, that news from Idaho comes on the same day Washington announces some new wolf numbers of its own.
