This is the kind of depredation where the wolves need to be shot-
This is unusual. Furthermore it took place on private land. Assuming there are no important facts left out of the story, these wolves should all be shot.
. . . a couple sidebars to this. 1. They need to get the pack that did it. This should not be a revenge killing situation. 2. People might think this is typical because of the constant trickle of media reports of a lamb here or two or three ewes there.
