Members of the Wedge wolf pack are being blamed for killing one cow in Stevens county, according to the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife.
Two cow carcasses were found on private leased property within the Wedge pack territory, according to a news release. WDFW staff investigated both carcasses June 12. One carcass had already been scavenged by numerous animals and investigators were unable to confirm the cause of death.
The second carcass had bite marks and hemorrhaging indicative of a wolf attack, according to the release.
Proactive nonlethal deterrents were in place when the attacks occurred, the release said.
