Fourth confirmed wolf depredation in Wedge pack territory
From the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife:
On June 17, WDFW staff conducted an investigation of an injured calf in a private pasture in Stevens County. This incident occurred within the Wedge pack territory.
The investigation of the injured calf showed bite wounds and lacerations consistent with a wolf attack. The calf and its mother were removed from the private 800-acre pasture to the livestock producer’s home for further monitoring. The combination of bite wounds and lacerations with associated hemorrhaging and recent wolf locations in the area provide evidence consistent with a confirmed wolf depredation.
