Idaho’s Schertz Sheep Company owner Frank Schertz runs thousands and thousands of sheep on his allotments in the high deserts of the Northwest and he also runs dogs who are trained and anxious to protect they're woolly charges from the menace of predators. Frank Schertz: “Those lambs scatter out in that brush and sometimes you can't even see them. You will hear them blatting in there calling out to each other and they will slowly work their way to the top of the ridge. A Herder has to stay with them because sometimes they go out too fast. Those lambs become vulnerable and the wolves are like kids in a candy store. They have all of those lambs in that brush. The wolves change the whole darn thing.”
