State investigates whether wolves killed cow
WENATCHEE (AP) — State wildlife biologists are investigating the death of a pregnant cow on a ranch south of Wenatchee — and they got a glimpse of a wolf while they were working.
The Wenatchee World reports it’s the same ranch where pictures of two wolves were captured on a remote camera on Sunday.
State wildlife officials named the wolves the Wenatchee Pack on Tuesday. Later that same day, they were at the Hurd family ranch investigating a dead cow.
Ross Hurd says he doesn’t want to create hysteria about the wolves, but wants people to know the wolves are in the area.
The state agency has not yet determined how the cow died. Meanwhile, the Hurd family plans to have more people patrolling their property and watching over their livestock.
