The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service reports that on March 5, USDA Wildlife Services specialists removed a single radio-collared adult male wolf near LaBarge.
According to FWS: "Fixed-wing aircraft located the animal visually. This lone wolf had been involved in numerous livestock depredations over the last two years, killing more than 3 calves, 1 yearling, and 18 sheep.
"Turns out its radio-collar was working and was on our missing radio list- so please remember it always pays to scan for missing radio frequencies if ‘new’ wolves show up in unusual places."
