Phantom Hill Story Continued...

In order to try and save the Phantom Hill wolves from tangling with the thousands of sheep that would soon be on the Baker Creek Allotment, North Valley Allotment and Owl Creek Allotment, wolf advocates took action. Discussions began with Carter Niemeyer, retired USFWS gray wolf recovery director, Boise, and Rick Williamson, Wildlife Services Wolf Specialist, Arco, about ways to keep the Phantoms away from sheep. One of the sheep permittees in the Phantom Hill Pack’s territory, is Lava Lake Livestock, an outfit that markets “predator friendly” lamb. Lava Lake runs on the North Valley Allotment in the heart of the pack’s home range and was already practicing pro-active measures to keep sheep and wolves apart.
