Galena Pack Story Continued...

For five 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.
