The article focuses on the anti-wolf advocacy of Ron Gillett in Idaho. It relates that Gillett demands that wolves must be driven out of the state because they are killing many farm animals. In response to anti-wolves advocacy, the government wildlife agents has launched an execution of several wolves and removed them from the list of endangered species to appease the ranchers and elk hunters. Moreover, it adds that Gillett's advocacy has already gotten him charged with misdemeanor assault resulting from an altercation with a pro-wolf woman. Further, it cites that Gillett never mentioned in his speeches that other anti-wolf advocates has refrained from supporting his petition because they view it as something that would push the government to reinstate tougher protection for wolves.
