As several major retailers temporarily ban the sale of Angora products in the wake of an undercover video showing alleged animal abuse at Angora farms in China, major clothing retailers Gap Inc. and Zara are holding out.

The future of wolves in Idaho is grim if we don’t act against their brutal anti-wolf agenda. In 2012, IDFG funded the aerial killing of 14 wolves, paying a bounty of $1600 per dead wolf. And now…
