Montana Wolf Pack Produces Far-Flung Wanderers

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - A wolf pack in Montana has produced at least two wayfaring members that roamed hundreds of miles, in one case getting as far south as Colorado.

A federal agent earlier this month killed a wolf that had been preying on sheep in the Big Horn Mountains, east of Ten Sleep, Wyo. That wolf turned out to be the litter mate of another wolf found dead in northwestern Colorado this spring.

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks wolf project leader Carolyn Sime says that both wolves came from the Mill Creek pack, on the eastern side of the Paradise Valley, south of Livingston.
