wolves kill cows in California
« on: November 01, 2017, 06:31:09 PM »
Tensions rise on the range after wolf kills cow in California for the first time in a century

"The Cattlemen’s Association said area ranchers suspect the Lassen Pack also attacked four other calves belonging to the same rancher last month. The state investigated those incidents, ruled out wolves in three of the deaths but said the fourth was a “possible” wolf kill. In the fourth instance, confirmation was impossible because so much of the carcass had been eaten.

In an interview with the Lassen County Times, the rancher, Wally Roney, said he was sure the wolf pack killed all five of the livestock. He said he’s considering moving from Lassen County after the attacks."
