    Idaho wolf update Sept. 26 – Oct. 17, 2008. Phantom Hill wolf-sheep project worked!

    Here is the latest wolf news from the Idaho Fish and Game Department-

    It looks like efforts to keep the Phantom Hill wolf pack from killing domestic sheep in the headwaters of the Big Wood River/Boulder/Smoky Mountains north of Ketchum, Idaho was highly successful. Only one sheep was killed by a wolf during the summer through the end of the grazing season. Many sheep graze this scenic mountain area.

    This major project was conducted by “Four producers, USFS, USDA Wildlife Services, IDFG, Blaine County Commission, and Defenders of Wildlife.”

    I should add that the Wolf Recovery Foundation, of which I am President, gave this effort a major (for us) monetary contribution.
