Wallowa County among five to receive state money 

The Oregon Department of Agriculture has approved $37,782 in supplemental funding to five counties for non-lethal methods of preventing wolf depredation. Money will be spent on techniques that effectively reduce conflicts between wolves and livestock. Those techniques include bone pile removal, fladry and the use of range riders. 

The funds are in addition to more than $25,000 distributed in June as part of the Oregon Wolf Depredation Compensation and Financial Assistance County Block Grant Program.

Wallowa County will receive more than $15,500 for range riders and fladry. The other counties receiving funds include Umatilla, Crook, Malheur and Morrow counties.

Range riders on either horseback or an ATV are used to patrol areas where livestock herds are present, looking for wolf activity and preventing interaction between wolves and livestock. Fladry — electrified rope with attached colored flagging that flaps in the breeze — is another technique designed to scare off wolves. 

Money for the supplemental funding is part of the $200,000 approved by the Oregon Legislature for the 2013-15 biennium. While the supplemental funds target preventative measures, money will continue to be available as part of the normal grant cycle to reimburse ranchers who have suffered confirmed or probable livestock losses due to wolf activity.
