A hearing was held on a bill Monday that would allow farmers and ranchers to take to the sky to protect their livestock from packs of wolves, according to the Idaho Statesman. The bill would give those affected by wolves a 60-day permit to hunt wolves destroying their livestock from the air, including use of helicopters and powered parachutes.

Sen. Jeff Siddoway, R-Terreton, said wolves costs ranchers thousands of dollars and the new methods of pursuing them may cut down those losses.
