“Wolf headaches persist for ranchers in elk-rich Jackson Hole”
By Mike Koshmrl, Jackson Hole News & Guide via Billings Gazette/AP, June 13
Russ Lucas first noticed in mid-April that an unwelcome neighbor — wolves — were back on his family's Spring Gulch cattle ranch.

The hindquarter of a calf, he recalled, had been bit into, and its hide peeled back. Seeing the severity of the wounds, the third-generation rancher knew exactly what had happened and what he needed to do.

"They tore him up bad enough, I had to kill him," Lucas told the Jackson Hole News&Guide.

Commentary: (Sharing from July Discord post) Koshmrl’s wolf articles are always balanced and great at including past context which is essential for accurate wolf coverage. He is a good journalist to follow if you are interested in staying up to date on wolf issues in Wyoming without wading through watered-down national news articles or bad writing. This a short, concise article on a recent wolf depredation in Jackson Hole, local attitudes about wolves and wolf management.
