All members of a wolf pack that had been preying on cattle in Washington state have been killed, according to NBC. The wolf pack had been responsible for 29 attacks on cattle since 2018, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife says.

Agency director Kelly Susewind authorized the deaths on July 31 and the four remaining members of the OPT wolf pack on Ferry County have been killed.
Environmental groups opposed the killings, which they contend benefit only one ranch operation in the Kettle River range.
There were 27 wolf packs in Washington by April.
