Fair bet it is twice that number and did any producers calculate weight loss and increased open cows.  The cost is devastating

One in nine get confirmed, so your guess would be a bit low..


'Fort Klamath area rancher Bill Nicholson said state biologists have been using hazing methods in attempts to stop wolf attacks, but “evidently the wolves aren’t too scared.”

“They have and they continue to be used,” ODFW biologist Mike Moore said of hazing methods, noting efforts have been coordinated with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. “We will continue with hazing methods.”

ODFW aren't any different than WDFW, using non-lethal methods that guarantee the most damage to livestock producers.

In 2008 when WDF$Wolves were forced to confirm a wolf pack in WA, ODFW came out the very same day with their first wolf pack in 70 years, and they have pretty much chased each other to the bottom of the ladder, although ODFW did pass a better wolf plan then WA, their actions in wolf control over livestock predation are basically the same.

"750-pound yearling steer in a 160-acre private grass pasture owned by Roger Nicholson"

These are the state's pets.  Imagine if one of your pets did this? :bash: :bash:

Over the years we have killed several deer chasing dogs, and a few that were in the wrong place at the wrong time. Turn the corner and add wolves which are protected while doing far worse to livestock and ungulates, the war on ranchers and wildlife promoted by the USFWS and WDFW..

I remember one time there was a small pack of town dogs that ran deer at night, we would see then trailing into town come daylight. These dogs were awful gun-shy, one day they were trotting down this canyon headed for town, and when all was said an done we figured there were 7 different rifles sling lead at the bunch after they scattered going every which way, none of them made it to town that morning.

The new addition to the Methow think it's natural to let their dogs run loose, it's country life
 they say, Blah, blah, blah, and every so often their dogs go missing also. Probably more "country" dogs in the Methow than deer now.
