Wolf killed in Bighorns

Last Wednesday, June 20, a two-year old male wolf was killed by an M-44 coyote bait in the Bighorn Mountains near Ten Sleep, Wyoming. The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service does not acknowledge the presence of wolves in this area, but every once in a while, one ends up getting killed or is caught killing livestock. At least one local sheep producer has reportedly experienced losses to two wolves in recent weeks. Federal law enforcement agents are investigating the death of the wolf.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service reports that after wolves from the Washakie wolf pack killed a calf and a cow near Dubois, USDA Wildlife Services personnel killed two adult male wolves (on 6/20/07). Control is complete at this time.
