WA: Wolves attack 2 more calves, state considering response

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — A northeast Washington wolf pack attacked two more calves, state Fish and Wildlife officials have confirmed, potentially pushing the department to consider shooting at least one wolf.

The Wedge pack injured one calf and killed another in a private pasture in Stevens County, a department spokeswoman told the Capital Press.

The pack inflicted fatal injuries on another calf on May 11, according to the department.

Department officials planned to meet Wednesday to discuss the department’s response.

According to the department’s lethal-removal protocol, Fish and Wildlife will consider shooting one or two wolves after three attacks on livestock within 30 days.
