Utah wolf killed for livestock kills

The U. S. Fish & Wildlife Service reports:

"In early July 2010 USDA Wildlife Services (WS) and Utah Department of Natural Resources (DNR) confirmed a wolf or wolves had depredated on both cattle and sheep on USDA Forest Service grazing allotments in the area of Utah where wolves are delisted northeast of Coalville.

"UT DNR authorized lethal removal of that wolf or wolves. In addition WS and UT DNR confirmed that a probably different wolf had killed 2 calves in a single incident south of the highway where wolves remain listed in Utah. No control was authorized by the Service for that area. No other wolves or depredations have been reported in that area since that time.

"On July 23, 2010 USDA WS trapped and shot an 80lb black female that was not lactating, where the early cattle and sheep depredations had occurred in the delisted area of Utah. UT DNR, WS, and the Service continue to closely monitor this situation."
