BUTTE – A Montana wildlife official says a federal trapper has shot and killed three wolves from the Table Mountain pack near Silver Star in southwestern Montana blamed for killing a calf on a ranch earlier in May.
Pat Flowers of the Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife and Parks tells The Montana Standard that the wolves were killed Tuesday on private land.
Flowers says one of the wolves was an adult fitted with a radio collar after a previous attack on livestock.
Flowers says the pack is still viable though it’s unclear how many members the pack contains.
