Wolves, reintroduced in Yellowstone and elsewhere in Idaho in the late s, are a common victim in the West. While the federal reintroduction enjoys wide public support, animosity runs high in rural regions of Idaho, Wyoming and Montana because wolves threaten livestock and kill elk coveted by hunters. When the meatballs arrive at the crime lab in March , chemist Mark Kirms goes to work on the poison, which resembles buckshot.
He identifies it as Temik--a pesticide used on potatoes and other crops. Though deemed safe for agricultural use because it breaks down in soil, Temik generic name aldicarb can cause convulsions and death when ingested in large quantities. Down the hall in the genetics section, forensic scientist Bob Hoesch analyzes the proteins in the meat, which he identifies as elk.
The evidence points to one primary suspect: Tim Sundles, an elk hunter and outspoken critic of wolf reintroduction. His Web site later taken offline details how to kill wolves with poisoned meatballs.
The agents ask around, and a local mentions seeing a white pickup at the Wagonhammer Creek trailhead on Feb. Sundles owns a white Dodge. Latham interviews a meat cutter, who says he processed elk burger for Sundles. In an earlier incident, Sundles, an ammunition maker, told a biologist that he wouldn't hesitate to shoot any federal officer who tried to stop him from killing wolves. Fearing an armed confrontation, Bragonier and Latham wait until he is out of town to serve a search warrant. On March 20, a team of state and federal agents raid his Carmen home.
