Washington State completes sharpshooter cull of wolf pack that had been feeding on livestock.

The collar around its neck was supposed to lead biologists to a better understanding of how an alpha male wolf leads its pack.

Instead, that GPS collar is what sharpshooters in a helicopter used to track down and kill the followers of the Wedge Wolf Pack in northeast Washington state.

On Thursday, after leading most, if not all, members of its young pack to their deaths, the alpha male was shot and killed.
