The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service reports:

"On 7/15/10, Wyoming Wildlife Services confirmed that 1-2 wolves killed a total of 14 lambs and 1 ewe on public land in the Big Horn Mountains, approx. 15 miles south of the Wyoming/Montana state border. Four additional lambs were injured and are not expected to survive. The depredations first occurred on 7/12/10, with additional depredations occurring on 7/13/10.
