Dogs attacked by wolf pack

Print Article

Domestic dogs were attacked by four wolves around 6 p.m. Wednesday night on the 600 block of Burke Road, just outside Wallace.

One dog died and another sustained a facial bite, said Shoshone County Sheriff Mitch Alexander, and there were many wolf tracks in the area.

A neighbor reported the dog that died was a Rottweiler.

Idaho Fish and Game notified residents in the area and informed them that it is legal to shoot the wolf pack.

Calls made to Idaho Fish and Game official Josh Stanley about the attack weren't returned.

Mullan resident Barry Sadler didn't just have his dogs attacked by wolves a few years ago - they chased his daughter into the front door and came right up on his porch. Sadler shot and killed one of the offending wolves.

Regarding Wednesday's attack, he said people don't realize that wolves would rather eat dogs than any other animal.

"They hate each other," he said. "They'll kill dogs any chance they get."

He said wolves just chew animals up a lot of the time without eating them, and called them "treacherous and filthy."
