    I have watched how wolves break out cow and calf elk from a herd of over 60 head of elk. To me, this is a large herd of animals. There were 7 wolves in the pack I watched from across a canyon that were able to get 4 ahead of almost a dozen head. 3 were behind them with one on each side and one pushing them into the 4 that were lying in wait for ambush. Several of the elk managed to cut back to the herd before the one on the top managed to cut the others off. They absolutely hamstrung the seven they chased and only ate the uterus of the elk. We managed to ride up the following day and found one cow still alive that was damaged so severely she couldn't get up. As we only had bull tags we couldn't do anything.
    I managed to drive to where I could call the Fish &Game and was told not to touch them and they would send field officers up to our camp for us to show them the kill site. They never showed but called me almost 2 weeks later for information to the site.
    I guarantee you that wolves will penetrate any herd size they desire and safety is numbers doesn't matter. They decimated huge numbers of elk from the herds we once had and the ones left have moved into areas that they never lived before to escape them. Sadly, now they have Cougars that are preying on them in these areas.

    Depending upon where at in northern Utah...they may be behind your house.....they were in Malad city 3 years ago....undocumented in Utah and now documented in Nevada.....
    Find your winter herds and you'll more than likely find their tracks....take out a few cougars while you're at it

    They didn't show up, because there was no money to be extorted in the form of fines. If you would have told them you shot ten wolves that were slaughtering elk, they would have been there to write tickets, steel firearms and make arrests. Guaranteed.

    Yea, they probably only followed up later just so they could keep up with locations of their pet project.

    You should go shoot them in Utah. They are all over the Uinta Mts. I have them on trail cam and have seen them while I was out chasing elk with a bow. Since Utah doesnt think they have them, you are really just shooting “Big Coyotes”.

    Stay north of I-84. You can also get on the Idaho Department of Fish &Game website at: www.idaho.gov
    They have maps that show the pack density in all of the various hunting units in Idaho.

    Back in the days I was wearing a badge we spent a lot of time responding to dog calls. Everyone had to have some sort of bull dog and when they got intimidated by it the dog was relegated to a chain and a coop. They got loose, ran the roads, killed pets, scared people etc. I shot a number of "pets" people neglected. A dog should be a family member, not an ornament. I hate shooting dogs but in the remote woods or on the farm I usually don't hesitate.

    Don't have to shoot any here. Wolves beat you to it.

    I heard about a wolf that was trapped in central MT recently. It had been collared in Washington state just this year.
