State stops wolf kill for now

The state Department of Fish and Wildlife has stopped its hunt for the Profanity Peak wolf pack now that the grazing season on public lands in the Colville National Forest is over for the year…The department, though, will continue to monitor the four remaining wolves in the pack, an adult female and three young, and target them again if they harm livestock this year. The pack once numbered 12 wolves…In all, the department documented 15 dead or injured cows. Of those, 10 were confirmed to have been preyed upon by wolves.
