OLYMPIA — The state Fish and Wildlife Department has authorized a rancher to shoot wolves that approach his flock of sheep in Stevens County in northeast Washington.
The department said Wednesday that state wildlife agents also may kill wolves to help Dave Dashiell of Hunters as he tries to move his flock of 1,800 sheep to safety. Since last Thursday wolves have killed 16 sheep. The latest attack was Tuesday night in the area about 50 miles northwest of Spokane.
A radio collar on a male wolf shows the Huckleberry Pack of wolves is preying on the sheep.
