doglover: False.Sheep are just too dumb to live.Wolves "kill" 176 sheep. 10 had bite wounds. The rest asphyxiated.

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.
