Wolves attack three heifers in Montana's Madison Valley

BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) - A Montana landowner has been given a shoot-on-sight permit to kill up to two wolves, after wolves so badly injured three yearling heifers that they had to be euthanized.

Federal wildlife officials investigated the attacks on September 19th and the 22nd. The rancher's name was not released, but he resides in the Madison Valley area.

The Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Department authorized the killing of up to two wolves by either federal officials or the landowner. The permit is valid through October 15th. After that, the cattle will be removed from the property for the winter.

The landowner has had wolves on and around his property since July. Two wolves from the Wedge pack were killed after attacking cattle on the same ranch in July.

It's unclear if the Wedge pack is responsible for the latest attack.
