On Saturday, shooters killed a member of the Old Profanity Territory wolf pack. The legal killing was authorized by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife last week after members of the OPT pack repeatedly attacked cattle grazing on federal land.
WDFW is evaluating the pack. If OPT pack members attack cattle following Saturday’s lethal removal, WDFW may target more wolves from OPT.
Prior to Saturday’s killing, WDFW estimated the OPT pack to have nine wolves in the pack, including four pups.
