“Yet, we always knew a time would come when no matter how much non-lethal work was done by ranchers, a depredation would occur,” Conservation Northwest’s range rider manager Jay Kehne said in a written statement. “Now is the time to stay the course, and continue on with good non-lethal work already going on in the Teanaway pack territory by some excellent herd supervisors and the rancher involved.”
