Sun Valley-Todd Grimm from the US Department of Agriculture's APHIS says wolf depredation complaints in Idaho decreased from last year.
"Wolves are a big problem, especially for the sheep and cattle producers in the state, We have less than a thousand wolves but they account for a lot of our depredation complaints," said Grimm.
He told Farm Bureau members and delegates attending the 2013 Annual Meeting that confirmed wolf depredations and the number of cattle killed by wolves were both down from 2012. The total number of confirmed depredations on sheep decreased by 40-percent despite the Teton County incident last summer in which 176 sheep were killed.
