Here, two weeks earlier, two wolves from the Whitehawk
Pack had been shot by government officials, after wolves and sheep had
several deadly encounters. We discussed the on-going problem of having
sheep move, every summer, into the wolves’ year round territory.
Horton Peak trail, we hiked past the granite outcrops and large Doug fir
trees where the sheep had been bedded down, and where the wolves attacked.
As thunder clouds approached, and rain fell over Alturas Lake to the west,
people read from Aldo Leopold, quoted Scripture, and expressed their
thoughts on wolves in Central Idaho.
Some of the group went on to Horton
Peak Lookout under threatening skis, while the rest of us were content to
have lunch among the sage, and look out across some of the finest wolf
habitat in the west.
This outing was written up in the Twin Falls
Times-News and Defenders of Wildlife Magazine (Fall 2001).
