Jackson County Considers Wolf Damage Payments

Public Domain

Not so long ago, there were no wild wolves in Jackson County.  There are still fewer than a dozen, say wildlife officials.

Rob Klavins at the group Oregon Wild is experienced with such systems from his work on wolf recovery in Northeast Oregon. 

Klavins joins us with details of wolf depredation committees.
