WALLACE, Idaho — The Shoshone County sheriff says two dogs were attacked by four wolves near the northern Idaho town of Wallace.

Sheriff Mitch Alexander said that one dog died and another sustained a facial bite in the attack Wednesday evening, and that there were many wolf tracks in the area.

The newspaper reported that Idaho Fish and Game officials told residents in the area that it is legal to shoot the wolf pack. Idaho Fish and Game official Josh Stanley didn't return a call for comment.
