JACKSON, Wyo. -- Officials with an Idaho company say wolves are suspected of killing eight of its sheep on a public land grazing allotment in Wyoming during the past 10 days.
The sheep are owned by the Siddoway Sheep Co., which is based in Terreton, Idaho. It is the same company that reported losing 176 sheep nearby in Idaho two weeks ago after wolves caused the herd to stampede and crush each other.
The eight sheep killed in Wyoming were located on a grazing allotment in the Bridger-Teton National Forest south of Hoback Junction.
J.C. Siddoway tells the Jackson Hole News & Guide that the company has had wolf problems there for about five years.
Wyoming Game and Fish Department officials are investigating.
