    Feral dog packs do this, often, wolves, never.

    But that reimbursement money sure is tasty, eh?

    Please don't throw out a rancher biased "newspaper" as "proof" either... Ooops, too late.

      The original werewolf stories started with an incident of extremely rare, but terrifying, wolf behavior in France in I think the seventeenth century (the film Brotherhood of the Wolf was based VERY loosely on this incident).  Occasionally individuals or packs get stressed and go crazy.  It's certainly not NORMAL wolf behavior.

        It is considered rather unlikely that whatever was responsible for the killings in France was a wolf and it definitely wasn't a pack of wolves.

        A couple wolves killing over 100 sheep would be extraordinary behavior, the kind that has never happened before or since. Seems far more likely that it was feral dogs or some kind of fraud for monetary or political reasons.
