Wolf compensation fund begins in Oregon

by Shawn Regan

The AP reports:

An Oregon county has approved a compensation fund for ranchers who lose livestock to wolves in the northeastern corner of the state, next to Idaho and Washington.

The Community Alliance Livestock Fund, or CALF, was approved unanimously on Monday by Wallowa County commissioners, who hope it can serve as a statewide model for Oregon.

The fund will begin this year as a community-based program accepting donations from people, businesses, and nonprofits.

    More unearned and undeserved power to counter-productive Lefty looters!

    Why not just shoot and trap and 1080-bait the wolves?
