doglover: False.

Sheep are just too dumb to live.

Wolves "kill" 176 sheep. 10 had bite wounds. The rest asphyxiated.

Read it like this: Where did the "possess the wolves and wean them on your hearty breastmilk" tactic come into disfavor?


Even reading it that way, it still has an extra chromosome.

redmid17: Jim_Callahan: Dadoo: I'm always hearing stories about how a couple of wolves will take out an entire flock of sheep in one night (just for fun, apparently), but now I'm beginning to question how many are true.

Zero of them.

Wolves are pack hunters, they'll cut an animal (usually a weaker/slower one) using basic pack strategy, kill it, and eat it.  They're also scent trackers, so packs will typically stay as far away from anything that smells like humans or our vehicles as possible.

They won't intentionally worry a herd beyond what's necessary to get their one kill, and generally won't even touch actual domestic animals.

If you're curious, there is a pack species that  will harry and slaughter domestic livestock just because they're dicks that find it funny.  They're called feral dogs, and shooting them is entirely legal (well, anyplace that discharging a firearm in general is legal).  Bonus points for them being one of maybe two wild species present in the US that can be a real danger to humans (the other two being the mountain lion and the grizzly bear, wolves aren't on the list at all because, again, pack hunters are smarter than that).

// Also "a couple wolves" is not really a thing.  A typical wolf pack has 6-7 members, and they go up to about 15-20 but don't really go below 4 very often.

You're wrong and assuming that all the deaths are directly caused by the wolves. They aren't. Wolves tend to go for the minimal kill, but it doesn't mean they won't go for more than they need.


I heard once, a very long time ago, that it's the running thing that causes wolves to go crazy when they encounter penned livestock. Since wolves normally have to run their prey down over long distances, and that would cause stronger animals to gain distance and weaker animals to drop behind, wolves will attack animals that "stop running", like penned animals have to do. That sends the wolves kill-instinct into overdrive, as if they're faced suddenly with dozens of deer they had run down instead of the normal one or two.

It was a very long time ago and I have no idea where I saw it; but it makes sense to me. Something in the wolf brain going "This one's tired, let's kill it...no wait, this one's tired...no, this one..no, this...this one...howabout this one...aaaaahhhh!"

They simply freeze to death when winter comes.
