On Thursday, Oregon approved the killing of two wolves that they have reported been hunting calves owned by a livestock producer. The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife would give the land-owner the go to shoot two of the wolves. The Fish and Wildlife officials are allowed to kill any wolves who pose a threat to the livestock of cattle ranchers. The rancher (who did not want to kill the wolves) moved the cattle to a more secure area and flashed lights at the wolves if they came too close according to the officials. The livestock producer is said to continue to use non-lethal force to prevent actually killing them. The Department of Fish and Wildlife eventually came to a conclusion and killed a young male—presumably one of the wolves that killed the calves. Wildlife advocates are said to be infuriated by this news.
