SPOKANE — Three more wolves from what is known as the Wedge Pack have been killed in northeastern Washington by state hunters.
The three wolves were shot from a helicopter on Wednesday, after two members of the pack were shot on Tuesday.
The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife is eliminating the pack because it has been preying on cattle near the Canadian border north of Kettle Falls.
Since July, Wedge Pack wolves are believed to have killed or injured at least 17 cows and calves from the herd of the Diamond M Ranch of northern Stevens County.
