Wolf pack near McCall, Idaho killed on government orders

BOISE -- The largest wolf pack in the state is dead after the U-S Fish and Wildlife Service was given orders to kill them.

A wolf pack that has been killing sheep near McCall has been killed by wildlife agents.
The nine-wolf Cook pack near McCall was preying on domestic sheep grazing on state and federal land in the area.
Authorities say the pack killed more than 100 sheep belonging to one rancher.

Wildlife Services agents shot and killed the wolves after attempts at hazing them away from the sheep failed. Sheep herders tried to prevent the attacks by camping with the sheep and using cracker shells, sirens, lights and other methods, but nothing worked.

Two other packs in the area, the Partridge Pack and the Hazard Pack, are also believed to be killing sheep. Those packs may also be killed.
There are an estimated 37 packs in Idaho.

Ironically, a wolf photographed near New Meadows last year won last years photo contest for the American Wood Council / American Forest and Paper Assoc. I run into those people from time to time at meetings. I may have to inform them of their loss. 8)

LMAO im sure that will get them started .
wolves in the Cambridge, council, McCall and Riggins area are nothing new. as you well know thats some BIG country .
we used to see them now and then . I personaly with a friend watch a male and female with 4 pups back in 1985 in Cuddy mountian . this was way back before the introductions and i still think they are great to see as long as the are controled within reason.
