Cattle producer says wolves cause breeding problems ( Washington )
Chewelah Independent) ^ | June 6, 2018 | Brandon Hansen

Posted on 06/17/2018 8:42:02 AM PDT by george76

A troubling trend has occurred for ranchers in NE Washington ... cattle are experiencing breeding issues since the migration of wolves to the area...

the rate of female cows .. that didn’t become pregnant has increased from five percent to about 20 percent. A cow must raise a calf every summer for the rancher to recoup costs

...

Diamond M also has a winter range to cut costs, but when wolves came into the area about a decade ago, they’ve seen their cattle attacked

...

Texas A&M University agreed with the open cow side effect from wolves, and an Eastern Oregon Agriculture Research Center study also showed wolf-caused stress in cows.

The ranch says they lose 70 head to wolves in a year

...

Stevens County Cattlemen’s Association is increasing the reward to $15,000 that leads to a conviction of those responsible for shooting, killing and maiming cattle in Stevens County. The association said since 2012, cattle have been the target of malicious groups shooting cattle when they’re grazing near roadways and suspects they might be people upset about the wolf issue.

“We have been running a reward ad for the last several years to try and catch those who are responsible for this,” said SCCA President Justin Hedrick. “No matter how you feel about wolves or any cattle related issue, it is cowardly and cruel to take it out on an animal. We are working with local law enforcement on this issue and have accepted the donation to increase the reward amount.”

...

CALF KILLED BY WOLVES IN FERRY COUNTY.

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife have confirmed that .. wolves from the Togo Pack killed a Ferry County calf in May.

This was the third confirmed kill involving the Togo pack in the past seven months.

Reminds me of the joke -
__________________

Rancher goes to a town hall to ask to shoot wolves on sight because they are wiping out his sheep herd.

Outraged, a liberal woman jumps up and objects. “We should safe-trap them and castrate the males. That way the wolves won’t die and the population will stop growing”.

The rancher shakes his head and says, “Lady, their trying to EAT my sheep, not F#@K them!”

Cattle shooting enviro-nutjobs should be treated like cattle rustlers were a century ago, hang em high.

Ranchers should be allowed to shoot wolves on sight if those wolves are near their cattle.

People like that really exist. We’ve had deer problems in our suburb, and have had people seriously suggest we should apply some sort deer birth control.

Wolves bring nothing good. There was a reason to not have them.

And this breeding issue is exactly the point of wolves.

Wolves do the same thing to deer, elk and moose populations. It isn’t just about what they eat, the constant harassment of the herds by wolves reduces the overall fertility by both decreasing conception rates and increased miscarriage from constant chasing of pregnant females.

Prey populations plummet and predator species turn their attention toward livestock and people. There have been two cougar attacks (one fatal) in the northwest this year. Both animals were young but emaciated adults. Not sick, old or injured, but young healthy and desperately hungry. But these nimrods want to reintroduce the Grizzly to the North Cascades.

Right. I remember that grizzly proposal. What could go wrong?

We just sold our remaining house in WA state - it should close by August.

So libs way is to castrate the wolves but use abortion to stop population growth?

Maybe we should castrate any male who causes a women to get PG?

Probably more like let the wolves breed like crazy.

It's considered a part of agenda 21 to amp up populations of predators and work toward rewilding half the country. Mother Nature knows best and all, ya know? Except she doesn't, by any means.
