Galena Pack Story
years, the Galena Pack largely stayed away from depredating on lambs or
calves. In 2007, B107 had nine pups. During that summer, the Galena Pack
was accused of killing a couple of sheep on public land on the SNRA
Salmon/Pole/Champion Sheep Allotment. One was an ailing ram that couldn't
keep up with the sheep band. There are always sick or crippled animals in
a band of 2,500 sheep. Sometimes a sheep that's not healthy, or is old, is
killed for camp meat or fed to the guard and herd dogs. But, wolves are
not allowed to feed on any sheep, including those that have been left
behind or wandered off and become lost.
