Same here with the wolves. Pack was closing in on a guy, and he shot one, which spoiled the party for the rest of the pack. The hysterical wolf advocates just tore into him with the most vile crap and lies. On the other hand, the Sheriff said he did the right thing, and the game dept. didn't prosecute him. However, it is not unusual for the game dept. to come down heavy on shooting big game out of season, so take care, be sure there was no choice.
