There are cracker shells in the shotgun to scare away the wolves if they are near livestock. It has been highly successful, with essentially no lost livestock in the territory of the Basin Butte Pack despite thousands of AUMs from late spring, summer and fall.  Proactive work can greatly reduce conflict between wolves and livestock.

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
