Shadowy Phantoms survive sheep invasion

Encounters with humans have made the black Phantom Hill wolves more elusive and cautious as they move like shadows through the mountains near Ketchum and Sun Valley. Good fortune was with the Phantoms this past sheep grazing season as they escaped being killed because of wolf-livestock encounters. Only a concentrated effort by wolf supporters, sheep ranchers and agencies kept the Phantom family intact. It helped that the Phantoms are a small pack consisting of the two alphas, a two-year female, a yearling male and four pups.
