I get around to a lot of places in this county. And while I read articles in the Chieftain and Observer about wolf depredations, I never dreamed I would come up on the scene of one myself. Or, I guess I should say a "suspected" wolf depredation until ODFW confirms it.
The wolves are either hungrier or getting braver, because of all places, the one I stumbled upon was within the city limits of Joseph. This is what I walked up on...
It was a massacre.
And while no cattle corpses could be identified specifically, the carnage of other livestock could not be missed...
Chickens were shown no mercy. They experienced, well, foul play.
Goats couldn't butt their way out of the attack.
"NOT THE FLYING PIG!"
Yep. I'm afraid so. His wings weren't much help this time.
Something must be done about those wolves. It's getting personal now.
