Remember that predator derby I wrote about back in August–the one sponsored by predator hate group Idaho for Wildlife? They applied for a Special Recreation Permit from the Bureau of Land Management, which triggered a scoping period to gather information for the development of an Environmental Assessment (EA) document.

The EA for the Idaho federal public lands predator derby Special Recreation Permit has been issued; comments are accepted until October 16, 2014. 

Revisit that previous blog post, “Stop a depraved ‘predator derby’ on your public land” – there you’ll find links to the recently-issued EA and previous documents, how to comment, and updated talking points.

In case you’ve forgotten who’ll be walking (and flying) around wearing a big ol’ predatory species “shoot me” target, 

Legal predators as classified by Idaho Fish and Game that may be harvested as part of this event includes [sic] coyotes, skunks, weasels, jackrabbits, raccoons and starlings. … The Gray Wolf, which is listed as a big game predator is also an acceptable targeted predator species as part of this event…

And get this: According to the BLM, approximately 56,500 comments were received during the scoping period alone; 56,490 of them were opposed to the competitive slaughter! Let’s do it again–for the nonhuman animals who don’t speak the language of bureaucrats and competitive killers.

  1. The real predators in Idaho are the humans. I would like to apply for an Idaho otter-hunting permit in their landlocked and hidebound state.
