Wolf Safe State
This Feb. 13, 2010 file photo provided by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife shows wolf coordinator Russ Morgan with a female wolf pup just fitted with a radio collar in northeastern Oregon. For the past year, Oregon has been a wolf-safe zone, where a temporary court order bars wildlife officials from killing wolves that kill livestock. While wolf numbers has risen to 46, the number of livestock kills has not. Wolf advocates hope the Oregon experiment can spread elsewhere, especially Idaho, where rising numbers of wolves killed last year was accompanied by a spike in livestock attacks.
