BOISE -- A helicopter carrying two Idaho Fish and Game biologists and a pilot crashed around noon Friday in the Kelly Creek area on the North Fork of the Clearwater River.
Officials say none of the three people on board had life-threatening injuries.
The two research biologists were trapping and radio-collaring elk, moose and wolves.
The pilot and the biologists were in a Hughes 500 helicopter operated by Quicksilver Air.
Fish and Game biologists routinely fly in aerial surveys, wildlife counts and capturing wildlife for research.
The last incident of this type involved a wildlife biologist that was killed in Dec. 2000 when the helicopter he was in crashed while on a wildlife count in northern Idaho.
Fish and Game flights have been suspended until Monday, pending review of safety procedures.
