Wolves near Sun Valley, Idaho, about 1/4 mile outside Parker Gulch, attacked and killed a mountain lion. It appears from autopsy results that the lethal kill came when wolves took out the lions throat. The pictures below, taken by Nils Ribi, show the wolf disemboweled. Authorities say that occurred after the lion was killed.

Reports say that the remains of a cow elk carcass was about 50 yards away and speculation is that both the wolves and the lion were drawn to the carrion at the same time and clashed.

This is testament of the voracity of a pack of wolves to take on a mountain lion and win.

The mountain lion was wearing an Idaho Department of Fish and Game tag on its ear.
