From January to June of 2018, state and federal authorities documented 61 confirmed wolf-livestock kills, the commission said Tuesday, and over the fiscal year that ended in June confirmed wolf-livestock kills on a record 113 different Idaho cattle or sheep ranches. That was followed by three incidents in July in the Sawtooth National Recreation Area in which wolves killed a total of seven sheep.
