'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!!

So 165 died from panic, and the rest were killed by wolves.

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

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.


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.

Hey now, I have it on good authority from all our Fark Ranchers that wolves kill everything in their path, just for the hell of it. I'll bet those sheep died from heart attacks after they saw the wolves' glowing, red eyes and their foot long teeth

HeadLever: grimlock1972: The owner of the herd/flock and his employees are just as much to blame if not more as they failed to adequately protect their livestock.

Why?  Siddoways use guard dogs in the past (still think that they do).  It would be a little cost prohibitive to assign each sheep with a blackwater escort.  They do take steps, but sometimes, the wolves find a way through the defenses.

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"

doglover: SwiftFox: So, the toll of the wolf hunts in Idaho driving livestock losses higher and higher is continuing to new records as they kill more and more, wrecking the packs an their ability to feed themselves on their natural prey.

This is simply a continuation of what happened the last couple of years.  Kill wolves at random, destroy their ability to regulate their own population, use that as an excuse to kill more random wolves and dig their state and all involved into the same hole deeper.

Now after Wisconsin's first "limited" wolf hunt, the packs have become much more defensive of their territories as loss of pack members reduced their strength against other wolves, and bear hunters running hounds out of sight in wolf territory there are having twice the incidents of the wolves defending their territories against the invading wolves threatening them and their pups, that ignore scent marks and howl they own the place instead. 8 or 9 incidents in the last month.  Oh, and Michigan wants to copy the idea of shooting a few wolves, partly on the basis it might have the opposite effect there, make wolves welcome other wolves (the dogs) into their territories.

Don't you understand. The wolves in Idaho are evil killers. They killed me when I was just a baby!


I sympathize. I know of at least another unfortunate whose mother revealed to him that his father was eaten by wolves a year before he was born, the local wildlife agency covering it up so as not to panic people.

Well it means that I actively try to shoot wolves.  I actually go out wolf hunting instead of sitting and drinking a beer on my deck.


From this story, it sounds like it might be more effective to get some sheep and wait for the wolves to come to you, but that might be considered passively hunting, which just isn't ITG enough.

Mike Chewbacca: BGates: Anybody who says the wolves were "re-introduced" needs to get educated.  The wolves the "re-introduced" were a different sub species of gray wolf.  The Canadian Gray's were "introduced".  And when they were, they completely killed off the native wolf that was endangered.

These non-native wolves are sterilizing the areas where they roam.

Until you big talking city slickers actually have to deal with these vermin, shut the hell up because what you read is complete BS.  All created by "environmentalists" who falsified data to say that wolves were actually good for nature.

Until they are under control I will shoot every wolf I see.

I don't care how much livestock dies from wolves. Ranchers are just a bunch of self-entitles crybabies who think man is the only species that deserves to exist (apart from the ones they raise for slaughter). Where I live, an alarming number of people believe that every elk, every deer, every sheep that dies was murdered by wolves. They take FWP statistics of elk death after an especially brutal winter, and leap to the conclusion that wolves killed them all. To listen to these troglodytes, elk would be immortal if not for wolves.

I am not talking about the others.  I am talking about the 10 or 11 that acutally had holes in them.


Oh, well, obviously the wolves attacked them.

Unless they were suicides designed to look like wolf attacks. Or maybe the sheep were part of the asphyxiation pile and the wolves were trying to rescue them, pull them to safety. It's not as if wolves have hands to do that with, so obviously they'd have to use their mouths.

BGates: doglover: dee_dubya: 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.

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.

And anybody who thinks the introduction of a non-native wolf is good for "nature" is a complete idiot (look in a mirror if you can't figure out I'm talking about your dumb ass).

You want these POS wolves, come get them.  Until you do I will actively shoot every wolf I see.
