3 wolves killed in Madison Valley. By Billings Gazette News Services.
This is actually the second control action on the Wedge Pack this year. In both cases it has been on the Sun Ranch which is at the base of the Madison Range.
The Sun Ranch has been extremely innovative and wildlife and wolf-friendly, so there is little doubt that this pack had taken the wrong direction. When the first control was made in July, the Sun Ranch even put out a news release expressing their regret. I didn’t see the news media pick it up, however.
It the large scheme of things–the local wolf population and the lost heifers–this is no big event. I post it because the main stream media picked it up.
