Wolves Take Down Livestock in Central Montana
Wolves are responsible for two separate livestock attacks in Fergus County Montana. The Great Falls Tribune has a write up about the attacks that happened on private ranch land.
Wolves also were blamed last month for killing 27 sheep near Ulm, which is 11 miles southwest of Great Falls. “They are trying to fill these open spaces that isn’t wolf habitat,” said Craig Glazier, supervising wildlife biologist for U.S. Department of Agriculture Wildlife Services in Helena. Wildlife Services confirmed that on Dec. 31 two yearling calves were attacked and injured by three wolves at a ranch on Flat Willow Creek on the eastern slope of the Little Snowy Mountains in southeastern Fergus County.
