SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - The state of Washington has announced plans to kill another member of a pack of wolves that is repeatedly preying on cattle in Ferry County.

But conservation groups contend it may be time to consider moving the cattle off of public lands.

The state Department of Fish and Wildlife said Wednesday that it planned to kill another member of the Old Profanity Territory wolf pack. The agency killed one member of the pack last month in an effort to change the pack's behavior.

But since then the pack is blamed for killing two cattle and injuring five. The pack is credited with a total of 27 depredations since last September.

The Lands Council sent the agency a letter last week saying it may be time to move the cattle instead.
