“Two Washington cattlemen said Tuesday that wolves have resumed attacking cattle grazing in the northeast corner of the state, where depredations last summer led state wildlife managers to cull a wolfpack.

Ferry County, Wash., rancher Arron Scotten said he found the remains of a calf Monday evening that had apparently been killed by wolves. He said he found bones nearby of a second calf, but too little of it may remain for a state Department of Fish and Wildlife investigator to attribute the attack to wolves.

The calves belonged to the Diamond M Ranch and were grazing near the boundary of private and Bureau of Land Management lands.

They are also near the location where WDFW last year shot seven wolves from the Profanity Peak pack to stop depredations. Four pack members survived.”<<<Read More>>>
