Some exciting news in central Idaho today – The Phantom Hill wolf pack made an appearance over the weekend igniting excitement from valley residents and wolf watchers.
Update 3/4/09: Predators clash above Elkhorn – Idaho Mountain Express
The Phantoms were in view – word got around and it was a wolf jam at the best viewing place.
Then, this morning an incredible thing happened – the Phantoms took a mountain lion. The young mountain lion, was likely feeding on an elk carcass several weeks old (evidently not killed by wolves because the skeleton was intact and various internal organs were laying frozen on the snow by it still today) about 60 yards up the draw from where the following photo was taken. The cougar apparently didn’t notice the approach of the wolves.
