State wildlife officials say a collared black male wolf was shot on private property after attacking sheep in southeastern Montana.

Fish, Wildlife and Parks Region 7 spokesman Dwayne Andrews says the 2-year-old wolf was shot Sunday near Hammond.

Montana laws allow people to kill a wolf in the act of threatening, attacking or killing livestock. The USDA Wildlife Services investigated and confirmed the wolf had killed one lamb and injured another so badly it had to be put down.

The wolf was originally collared near Jackson, Wyo., in 2010, about 300 miles from where it died.

On average in the northern Rockies, wolves disperse about 60 miles, but dispersal distances of over 500 miles have been recorded.
