Rosier, MO Wolves Kill Children, June 1889


Kansas City, Mo., June 17. -- Last Thursday two children of EDWARD BACHUS, a farmer of Rosier, Mo., a small village fifty miles south of Kansas City on the Kansas line, went to a creek about a mile from home to fish. Upon their failing to return at night searching parties were organized, and last Friday evening their bones were found near a ledge of rocks that had long been known as Wolf's Den.
A band of timber wolves have haunted this section for years, and it is thought the children were killed and eaten by the animals. The boys were aged, respectively, ten and twelve years.
