CARIBOU BEING KILLED BY WOLVES Animals Traveling in Packs Near Dawson Are Reducing Supply of Fresh Meat Extensive slaughter of hi* name by wolve:'. In the district weat of Dawson In reported by recrii I ar rival! from that direction. Jim Hughe4* who arrived the otber day from (be Slxtymile. report* thai he found the carcasses of *ix caribou In one locality on the Slxtymile where the anlmah had been afhln b) the wolves. It appears that the wolver. had found came ao plentiful that tbey did not rare for more thau the blood and a few bitca-of flesh from each carcass, and after perfomlug their deatrurtlve work moved on to m.all likelihood deatroy more anl malt. . One arrival In town reports thai Joe Roachon. the road house keepei on the Dawson-Gtarlar trail, about thirty miles west from Dawson. re ? ently found the carcasses of slxt) caribtMi In one gulch near bis plac? where they had been killed bj wolves. The ran of ? aribou In the re* toil west of Dawson baa been ao heavy this year that tfce wolves which have followed the main band have gorged themselves and wrought no end of slaughter among the aulmala. Krnm the reports received It seems that the wolves, in killing a caribou, hamstring him. and then cut hla throat with the sharp fang*. After falling from effects of the tendon In the leg being cut. the *n!m:tl soon bleeds to death The flesh of a cari bou which la not disemboweled Im mediately after belug slain, quickly forms gas and tha meat becomes tainted and unlit for human con aumption. Some of the hunter*; however, find the rycaaacs lit for dog food. Tens of thousand:i of caribou have roamed the hills westward from Daw son iti* year, and wolves have been reported following the hand In great numbers If the deatructlon has been i-onatant and a* great In differ ent place* as Indicated In the two Instifncea cited In the foregoing, the Hlaughter by wolves must have been rnormou* and something coaipared to which the number of animals killed for human consumption would be a bagatelle.
