After wolf attacks, rancher regrets time in middle ground

Nature was hard on Idaho ranchers in August.  First, the Pony and Elk Complex fires in the Mountain Home area killed more than 250 cows…also killed about 100 head of sheep…Meanwhile, 176 sheep died on the west slope of the Tetons in Idaho when wolves panicked them and they ran over a ridgeline and were trampled or suffocated.
