ODFW shoots third Harl Butte wolf for livestock attacks – Livestock – Capital Press

Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife staff shot and killed a third member of the Harl Butte pack Thursday night and will shoot one more as it tries to deter the pack from devouring cattle in Wallowa County.

The latest “lethal take” is the department’s escalated response to eight confirmed livestock attacks attributed to the pack over the past year. The most recent was a calf found dead Aug. 16 on private pasture. The department killed two pack members earlier this month and announced it would monitor the situation. After the most recent attack, ODFW decided to kill two more adult wolves.

Ranchers represented by the Oregon Cattlemen’s Association said ODFW should kill the entire pack, which apparently included 10 adults and three pups before the three adults were shot this month. Todd Nash, the association’s wolf chairman and a Wallowa County commissioner, said the pack gets after cattle every day.

Ecco i quattro cuccioli di lupo Fotografati vicini alla Val Cavargna – Lago e valli Cavargna

Quattro cuccioli di lupo a due passi dal territorio italiano e dalla Val Cavargna. Eccola la prova della cucciolata nata dalla coppia che danni è costantemente monitorata dalle autorità cantonali e lariane. Quattro piccoli che scorrazzano tra pietre e prati della Valle Morobbia,a poca distanza dal confine con la provincia di Como, sono stati fotografati attraverso le “foto trappole” posizionate dall’ufficio caccia e pesca del Canton Ticino. Il risultato è davvero sorprendente: non capita tutti i giorni di vedere una nidiata di quattro cuccioli di lupo che in apparenza godono di ottima salute e sembrano divertirsi molto. Negli ultimi tre anni salgono così a 10 i lupi nati tra Canton Ticino e Comasco dove la presenza del predatore è stata accertata in tempi recenti nel dicembre 2015, sempre attraverso una “foto-trappola”.

Environmental groups decry ‘unnecessary’ killing of wolves, ask Gov. Brown to show leadership | OregonLive.com

Oregon’s Department of Fish and Wildlife has “lost its way” and the state’s plan for managing wolves has veered off course, according to leaders from 18 environmental nonprofit groups.The environmental coalition sent a letter to Gov. Kate Brown on Thursday asking her to be more involved in the agency’s affairs as it works to finalize a new version of the state’s Wolf Conservation and Management Plan, which advocates say is two years overdue.The letter comes one day after state officials confirmed two additional wolves from the Harl Butte pack in County will be killed after the state said the animals killed livestock. Last week, the state confirmed it killed two animals from the pack in response to ranchers’ concerns.”The Harl Butte situation again calls into question the effectiveness of killing wolves and demonstrates the need for clearer sideboards around what non-lethal actions must be attempted before trapping and shooting of wolves will be allowed,” the coalition said in the letter.
