Map shows the range of the Wedge Pack in the first six weeks after the pack's alpha male was trapped, collared, released and monitored by radio telemetry. While the pack ranges well into Canada, Washington Fish and Wildlife officials have associated the wolves with attacks on cattle in grazing alotments in the "wedge" area between the Kettle and Columbia rivers.

ENDANGERED SPECIES — Before taking a break for the holiday weekend, Washington Fish and Wildlife Department officers confirmed that wolves had attacked two more cattle on private land in northern Stevens County, this time on private land.

See details in this report by Andy Walgamott of Northwest Sportsman.

Today Fish and Wildlife officers have resumed their hunt to radio collar another wolf in the pack and kill up to four members of the pack in an attempt to stop the pattern of depredations on Diamond M Ranch cattle in the Wedge area between the Columbia and Kettle Rivers.

See a just-posted update on the situation, again by Walgamott, the wolf man from Northwest Sportsman.
