Two officers face charges of drug possession and trafficking narcotics, including cocaine and the powerful painkiller oxycodone, into Rikers Island, along with other contraband, the prosecutor said.

Idaho suspends plan to kill wolves in wilderness

Yahoo! National News - Wed, 07/30/2014 - 04:09
By Laura Zuckerman SALMON Idaho (Reuters) - Conservationists claimed victory on Tuesday after Idaho wildlife managers suspended the killing of wolves in a protected wilderness area for preying on elk prized by commercial hunters. The state's Department of Fish and Game hired a hunter last year to trap and kill wolves in the central Idaho mountains, responding to complaints from sportsmen who say the wolves threatened big-game animals. The push by state wildfire managers to kill wolves was challenged by a lawsuit from conservation groups represented by the environmental law firm Earthjustice that said it violated principles of limiting human intervention in wilderness areas. Overall, Idaho aims to reduce its total wolf population to 150, from about 600 now, through recreational trapping and hunting, and state wolf-control actions including shooting from aircraft.
