Idaho Dog Killed by Wolves

Ingram Publishing

BOISE, Idaho (KTVB) – The owner of a dog recently killed by wolves wants something to be done to protect animals from wolves. This attack happened in the same area as another attack just a few months ago.

Both happened in northern Gem County near Sage Hen Reservoir. The attacks have the attention of Wildlife Services and Fish and Game.  Chisolm, the dog and Tom Blessinger have been together for the past nine years. The 150-pound Great Pyrenees was Blessinger’s guard dog to protect their sheep and cattle from wolves.

On Monday, July 14, there were no sheep or cattle when Blessinger took Chisolm up to the Sage Hen area to meet with the Forest Service. They were inspecting water tanks in the area. The dog ran off. On Wednesday, someone found Chisolm dead just 20 feet from a road and a half mile from a campground.  In April, wolves killed a calf in the same area and in a similar way.
