California fund to help ranchers who lost cattle due to wolf attacks is running out
California’s monetary million package will be depleted after the current 102 applications are processed.
Wolves have been a thorn in the side of cattle producers for years, and now a fund is set up in California to compensate ranchers for their losses is running out of money.
Ranchers in the Golden State are not allowed to shoot wolves attacking their cattle, and that is much different than other states, like Wyoming, where they can be shot on-site. To compensate, California set up a monetary fund to help ranchers who lost cattle due to wolves. The $3 million package will be depleted after the current 102 applications are processed.
The Northern part of California is now home to more than 40 wolf packs.
