Foes, Forest Service battle over Idaho wolf derby
An attorney for WildEarth Guardians on Friday told a federal judge in Boise she should halt the event because the U.S. Forest Service shirked its own rules by not requiring derby organizers to get a special permit normally required for commercial events.
The U.S. Forest Service's lawyer countered that hunters would be coming to Salmon, Idaho, this weekend -- regardless of whether there was a hunting contest.
He told Judge Candy Wagahoff Dale that opponents couldn't demonstrate they'd be irreparably harmed.
Dale promised a decision before the derby's start Saturday.
