Wildlife Officials Confirm Wolves Killed Sheep On Idaho Ranch
State wildlife officials have confirmed that wolves killed 31 sheep on a south-central Idaho ranch over the weekend.
Carey-area rancher John Peavey tells the Idaho Mountain Express that the ewe, one lamb and two that weren't born were also killed Sunday morning.
Idaho Wildlife Services State Director Todd Grimm says the final mortality count for kills on May 10 and May 12 was 13 ewes and 18 lambs.
Peavey says a state Fish and Game representative determined wolves were to blame. Idaho Wildlife Services has a kill order on at least two wolves in the area.
Garrick Dutcher is program director for the advocacy group Living With Wolves. He says Peavey puts his sheep at risk by practicing "range lambing."
