JACKSON, Wyo. (AP) - Three wolves in a problematic pack near Jackson are being targeted by wildlife officials after another attack on cattle.

The Jackson Hole News and Guide reports (https://bit.ly/2f3jVy5) the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service again sent a U.S. Department of Agriculture Wildlife Services agent to kill some of the animals.

This is at least the third time the wolves have made their way onto pastures with grazing livestock.

Wildlife Services has killed 11 of an estimated 19 wolves in the pack.

Wolves took two calves and bit another about a week ago.

Fish and Wildlife Wyoming field supervisor Tyler Abbott has not ordered the pack’s complete removal.

He said he’s hopeful the pack can learn to tie livestock with danger as officials kill problem wolves.
