[8/2/19] Wolf Pack Killing Cattle

Posted in EnvironmentTagged ,

The state Fish and Wildlife Department has announced plans to kill another member of a pack of wolves that is repeatedly preying on cattle in Ferry County. But conservation groups contend it may be time to consider moving the cattle off of public lands. The state agency said it planned to kill another member of the Old Profanity Territory wolf pack, after killing one member of the pack last month in an effort to change the pack’s behavior. But since then the pack is blamed for killing two cattle and injuring five. The pack is credited with a total of 27 depredations since last September. The Lands Council sent the agency a letter last week saying it may be time to move the cattle instead.
