Two Flathead Valley men who were retrieving an elk in the South
Fork Flathead drainage say they ended up fending off a pack of
aggressive wolves Saturday.
They were forced to leave behind the elk, and they ended up
killing one wolf, resulting in an investigation because wolves are
still protected under the Endangered Species Act.
