The Grouse Flats wolf pack in Garfield County has been credited with killing a 450-pound calf on Aug. 30, according to a Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife news release.

The Grouse Flats pack attacked cattle three times in 2018 and twice in July this year. In total, the pack has attacked or injured cattle four times in the past 10 months.

WDFW staff are discussing how best to address this situation. WDFW Kelley Susewind will assess this situation and consider next steps, according to the release.
