The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service reports that on Thursday, July 19, USDA Wildlife Services personnel confirmed that an apparently lone wolf killed a calf on private land near LaBarge. FWS has authorized Wildlife Services specialists to kill the wolf.
Idaho livestock producers are suffering from repeated wolf depredations this summer. In one incident last week, a wolf came into a cowboy's camp site and killed a border collie that was chained up only 20 yards from an unattended camp trailer. The camp was on national forest land about 20 miles southeast of Idaho Falls on Falls Creek.
