“We have one dead wolf; we don't know what killed it,” Steve Oberholtzer said from the agency's Denver office.

The wolf wore a radio collar, but he did not know where its pack was located, he said.

As of last week, about 348 wolves — 247 outside Yellowstone National Park — were in Wyoming in a total of about 45 packs, with 34 of those packs outside the park, according to a preliminary report released by the Fish and Wildlife Service.

In 2010, the Fish and Wildlife service documented 58 wolf deaths, with 40 of those killed because of livestock predation, two from natural causes, nine that were illegal or are under investigation, three unknown causes, and four others, according to the report.

> Total documented predation in 2010 of sheep, cattle and other animals by wolves amounted to 65, the lowest number since 2003Idea, according to the report.<
