Caribou Get Protection In N. ID and N.E. WA

   BOISE, Idaho (AP) - Nearly 600 square miles of federal, state
and private land in northern Idaho and northeastern Washington is
due to be designated critical habitat for dwindling woodland
caribou. Yesterday's announcement by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service comes after environmental groups including the Center for
Biological Diversity sued nearly a decade ago, contending the 1984
move listing the North American reindeer cousins under the
Endangered Species Act wasn't enough.
