Wolves killed 11, the rest died from asphyxiation.

Better get Palin in a helicopter.  This is, actually, one problem she IS capable of solving.

Three wolves would have just howled at the moon.

They all died piled up on top of each other. I'm not buying a word of this story apart from some wolves had an all you can eat buffet.

Nah, I was only joking, there were no wolves. Haha, got you all good.

That's a good call when dealing with wolf kill stories out of Idaho.

Yep, you guys are right. I'll bet the sheep asphyxiated themselves, then the wolves came along and had a snack. No chance the wolves running the sheep caused them to bunch and asphyxiate.

Maybe the wolves were trying to make themselves some sheeps clothing.

Yum.

And people wonder why ranchers attempted to prevent the wolves from being reintroduced.  That's a significant financial hit.

Yep.  When wolves were reintroduced, there was an odd reduction of accidental, medical, and neglect related deaths.  For some reason every sheep to die in the state died to a wolf attack.  Most odd.

Rams don't run from wolves. They're called rams, like the verb, because they farking ram things. They're basically a short temper on legs.

Upset the natural order and remove all the rams from 100s of ewes and see the power of unnatural fear. If there had been two or three rams, this story would be about one dead sheep or less.

Anyone who blames the wolves here can suck the long dick and choke on it.

Too bad they couldn't buy some insurance to protect their business from such financial hits. Oh, wait.

Also, why the SICK tag, subby? Nature's cruel, but come on. It's not like the wolves conspired to suffocate 165 sheep for no good reason.

/How stupid do you have to be to asphyxiate yourself in a panic? Seems counter-evolutionary.

This. Why should we give a fark about some dumbshiat ranchers when they fail to properly protect their livestock?

I have no sympathy for ranchers blaming nature for their failures.

Would ranchers try to pull the wool over our eyes?  I don't think they have the chops. They're just salt-of-the-earth types trying not to get fleeced.

It must have been werewolves.
 
2013-08-20 06:57:29 PM
So...lemme see if I understand this correctly...

Two wolves find a sheep herd of over two thousand sheep, and because they're in a pen, the wolves can get in, but the sheep can't get out and the two wolves have a grand night of chasing sheep.

So much so that the stupid things piled up on top of each other in a panic to get away and killed themselves in their stupidity, while the wolves kill about ten of them in their chasing.

Then cap the night off by eating a sheep and then disappearing into the night.

And through it all, the vigilant shepherds didn't take notice until about 1am and didn't get out there in time to stop the wolves' games and late night dinner.

And of course, it's not the shepherds' faults for being stupid and not watching over their sheep close enough when they're trapped in a pen that they can't escape...

It's the wolves' fault for being wolves and liking the taste of sheep and like chasing sheep.

In the wild, these two wolves would have undoubtedly found a herd of deer and probably managed to chase down the slowest of them and had a nice dinner.  Nature at work.  But, in this case, they found a bunch of trapped sheep and some stupid shepherds who are bad at their job.

Title should be "2 wolves killed 10 sheep; stupid shepherds kill 166 sheep"

I.... what? How is that even possible? The article did not make sense to me.

Yeah.  They're still on the lamb.

I'd imagine domestication farks with survival instincts somewhat.

Sounds like the rancher needs a better fence, or insurance, or sheep dogs, or rams.

Sheep. By far. A sheep makes a chicken look like Alex the parrot.

Good. Hopefully the asshole who owned them goes out of business and has to take up another occupation where they're not responsible for others' lives.

Asphyxiation? Did the wolves strangle them?

Whatever...now the ranchers have a convenient excuse to go on a wolf-killing spree.

That's the idea, right?

'almost all of the sheep died from asphyxiation. About 10 died of bite wounds and one was partially consumed.'

Soooooo.....two wolves tried and succeeded in eating one sheep after tasting nearly a dozen, and the rest of the herd formed a deadly, wooly cheerleader pyramid that collapsed and they suffocated?

Let's review....

Lamb:Tasty (to both hominids and canids)
Lamb: Stupider than I thought, feel less bad about eating.
Wolf: Doing what it's supposed to do, and surprised by rancher butthurt wrongly applied to them.
Wolf: Kills coyotes, which are more of a problem that wolves.
Rancher: Butthurt, sad (girlfriend was one of the suffocated), and whiny.
Rancher: "Why!! Oh!! Why!!! Let's kill every wolf!! My poor Baaarbara!!
 
2013-08-20 07:05:22 PM
Yep, wolves will joykill from time to time.  Happened near Dillion Montana a few years ago.  Just a fact when you live near wolves.

Overall, livestock depredations are down since our wolf hunting season started.

This guy's herd is attacked by wolves and he's the asshole.  City folk are so funny.

Wolves don't go into enclosed pens. You know what goes into enclosed pens and chases sheep around (biting, but not eating them)? Dogs.
