    Over 60% of wolves 10 yrs ago that were tested in central Idaho had Hydatid tapeworm disease ( Echinococcus granulosa). It is almost certainly higher now. This is endemic in the ungulate population as intermediate hosts now as well and is dangerous to humans also. You MUST use rubber gloves and use good hygiene when handling wolves, as the eggs are shed onto their fur and can infest our gut as well. The immature tapeworms that hatch inside us will leave our gut because our gut environment as an omnivore is unsuitable and will burrow out and form cysts in the internal organs, as they do in deer and elk, etc. They are dangerous to domestic canines who eat gut piles of infected deer or elk as well. The quiche-eating liberals that turned them loose in Idaho just laugh about it now. If you are a wolf hunter, please use caution skinning or handling these animals, and avoid handling or contacting any wolf scat you encounter. Yeah, I know, but even your boots can contaminate you. The eggs remain viable for months in a scat pile. This is how ungulates become contaminated. They eat the lush green grass that grow up from around a scat pile. The IDFG doesn’t want to talk about this because they want to sell tags.
