A special Guest to tell his story of living with wolves. Brett Hogaboam- 38 years old. Born and raised in Potlatch, Idaho. Lifelong resident. Have wife and four children in public school. Went to college at University of Idaho- Served in U.S. Army, 1994. Worked a few labor-focused jobs after military. Started a career in law enforcement as a deputy sheriff & town marshal until 2003. Became dissatisfied with the environment I was in and changed jobs to working in various sales positions from direct sales to inside sales and ultimately worked for a newspaper, selling advertising and publishing a weekly outdoor humor column. Was let go in 2009- Newspaper is falling apart across the nation. Now I work in the insurance industry and practice some professional photography. My greatest passion in life is the outdoors. I have been an avid hunter for most of my life. I also have a keen interest in survival techniques and bushcraft. My time spent in the outdoors has exposed me to a great many things including elk, deer, moose, mountain lion, bobcat, wolverine, badger & even a weasel. But I have never seen or heard wolves in the area where I hunt. On Sunday evening, I was returning home with my father and my 14-year-old son when we encountered a wolf in my driveway. It was not afraid of us and it walked away as soon as we got out of the truck. It never ran or even appeared threatened by our presence. And the on Monday afternoon, it returned in broad daylight. The wolf was stealing garbage from my trash storage and had apparently come back for more. Now I have to be extra careful to ensure the safety of my kids and our pets. We feel like we are hostages to these animals and are forced to give up our safety and peace of mind in our own homes. I called the Sheriff- Nothing. Fish & Game- Nothing. Spokesman Review - Nothing. USDA said to call if I see it again & they might try to trap it & relocate it... basically Nothing. What a joke! -- Brett Hogaboam
