Oregon gets funds to help producers deal with wolves

A federal grant will soon be available to help farmers and ranchers combat wolves in Oregon.

$100,000 will be spent by the USDA to help solve the problem in non-lethal ways like range riding, carcass management, and safer fencing options. Leaders at the Western Landowners Alliance say preventing livestock deaths are sometimes difficult because wolves can be quite intelligent.

They are hoping technology, like surveillance cameras, could track wolf movement and notify ranchers of danger in real-time.
