Wolves in Wyoming

Ken Mills holds a cleaned cow moose leg found while tracking wolf kills on Thursday, July 31, 2014, in the Gros Ventre Range outside Jackson. A nearby skull showed signs of infection and decay on the moose's gums that led to jaw necrosis - a sign that the moose was likely in poor health, making it an easy target for wolves. "It's not that wolves kill the sick and the old and the young, they kill the vulnerable," said Mills, a wolf management specialist with Wyoming Game and Fish Department. "Vulnerability matters to a wolf. It's not just 'kill everything,' it's opportunity and vulnerability." (Ryan Dorgan, Star-Tribune)
