Ranchers obtain wolf permits

The Spokesman-Review
LA GRANDE, Ore. – Five ranchers in northeastern Oregon have permits to shoot wolves if they see the animals attacking their livestock. The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife issued the permits after confirming that wolves killed two calves in Wallowa County this month. Wolves have been spreading through Oregon since crossing into the state from Idaho, where they were re-established by the federal government in the 1990s.
