Wolf-kill attempts decried

Seven conservation organizations sent a letter today calling on Washington Gov. Chris Gregoire and state agencies to rescind a state Department of Fish and Wildlife plan to thwart attacks on cattle by killing wolves in the Wedge Pack in northeastern Washington. WDFW officials announced last week that up to four wolves may be killed in the Stevens County area near the Canada border after the latest in a series of wolf attacks that had injured six cattle and killed two. The state killed a wolf in that area on Aug. 7. The war on predators continues, all to please livestock growers who get a big break on the fees they pay to graze federal public land.
