Lethal control expires for Meacham wolves, reopened for Harl Butte

From the East Oregonian:

The target has been taken off one northeast Oregon wolf pack, but it’s back on another.

According to the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, the permit for Cunningham Sheep Co. to kill a second wolf from the Meacham pack expired Sept. 30. That permit was not renewed because no further depredations have occurred and livestock is mostly removed from the area, according to ODFW. While the permit allowed for two wolves to be killed, only one — a female that bred this year — was shot on Sept. 7.
