Pass Creek Story Continued...

During the cold, snowy winter of 2007-2008, the Pass Creek wolves followed the elk out of the mountains, into the lowlands along the East Fork of the Salmon River.

Along the East Fork, harsh winters are hard on young ranch calves and some of them die at birth, or from other causes.

This past winter, carcasses were hauled out of the pasture and left on private land along the East Fork Road. Wolves were attracted to the dead calves and fed on their remains.
