KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) - An Oregon county is looking for non-lethal ways to deter wolves after experiencing its first livestock kills in October.

The Herald and News reports (https://bit.ly/1OanQ6h ) that Klamath County will put together toolboxes of deterrents for landowners with a $6,000 grant from the Oregon Department of Agriculture. The county will also contribute $600 to the project.

The county will work with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife to create the boxes.

Officials believe a wolf called OR-25 killed on calf and injured two more in the Fort Klamath area in late October and early November.

Klamath County commission chairman Tom Mallams says the $6,600 won’t be used to compensate the livestock owners. That money will come from the wolf depredation compensation fund.
