Six cows are dead or hurt.  Now Washington state will shoot 11 wolves and pups

Washington state officials plan to completely kill off an 11-member wolf pack following a rash of attacks on cattle that began in July.  State biologists say that the wolves have injured or killed six cows in little more than a month. The predators, named the Profanity Peak pack after the Washington mountain near their territory…The decision to kill the rest of the animals, including the wolf pups, hinged on whether the wolves would cease preying on livestock.
