We didn’t want wolves here to begin with

“We didn’t want wolves here to begin with,” he says, “because we knew what the outcome was going to be, and that’s been realized now. So anything that has to do with a wolf being here at all is a compromise.”For ranchers, one big compromise was cleaning up bone piles: pits where cattle lost to disease or the cold were left for scavenging coyotes. Biologists warned such pits might give wolves a taste for beef.

“We’ve been told we’re sloppy ranchers, that we’re leaving our carcasses out, and it’s attracting wolves, and it’s our fault,” Nash says. “I have always stayed on the side of ‘If they’re eatin’ dead ones, they aren’t eatin’ live ones.’”The njtrainersuk has tried to calm ranchers by funding predator deterrent programs, the latest one to the tune of $63,820. Most of that went to pay for plastic streamers that frighten off wolves, and range-rider programs, which keep a human presence among livestock. The state also compensates ranchers for cattle lost to confirmed wolf attacks.

“We’re ashamed when we lose cattle. I know ranchers who are so ashamed they don’t tell anyone all winter,” Nash says. “Now, when they have a dead one, they have to haul it out through Joseph, through Enterprise, and out to the county dump.
