Sometime during the middle of last week a couple of donkeys escaped from their fenced Kelly enclosure and were roaming the adjacent National Elk Refuge when they encountered a wolf pack undoubtably more accustomed to seeing elk.
The Pinnacle Peak Pack’s instincts kicked in, and the unplanned rendezvous didn’t end well for the donkeys. After receiving a report, Wyoming Game and Fish Department large carnivore biologist Mike Boyce and his technician, Becca Lyon, investigated the scene where the domesticated equids and wild canines clashed, Game and Fish spokesman Mark Gocke said.

This isn't the most cut and dry story of wolves preying on domestic animals (because they escaped), so I thought I'd share it here. I also post this because I'm honestly surprised that the wolves did not kill more than just the one donkey.
