Phantom Hill Story Continued...

Defenders of Wildlife, who has experience in dealing with sheep ranchers, took the lead for pro-wolf interests. Defenders came up with $25,000 to hire three people to work with the three sheep outfits who graze for through the pack’s territory. Wolf managers laid out a science-based program that would test various non-lethal methods. Defenders folks were also provided telemetry so they could track B333, the alpha male, and B326, the two-year old female. As a result of the program, there was just one wolf depredation on a sheep this summer.
