Re: 176 Sheep dead...
I was thinking more in terms of sitting there and making sure no more poor predators get hooked on it! No I don't believe the sheep folks need to add insult to injury, if anyone has a responsibility it's the folks putting the tracking collars on critters. Bad behavior begets more bad behavior. Getting black, or grizzly bear hooked on sheep meat isn't going to improve the neighborhood for anybody. There is also at least one pair of adult wolves in the area they know of. If USFWS had to clean up their messes it might alter a point of view or 2. This way only gives them an excuse to cut grazing there next year, and the critters don't know private property from what used to be public. I'm rooting for Roy in this one. I would like to access the tracking info, just to know how many, what kind, and how far the clean up crew is coming from. One report indicates this wasn't a one time deal, its been preceded by other attacks that include horses, and great pyrenees guard dogs killed, for those that didn't think the dogs were trying to earn their keep.
