Conservation groups react to the news of poisoned Oregon wolves

Feelings run high about gray wolves coming back to the region, but now it appears someone is taking out some anger directly on the wolves.

A total of eight wolves have been poisoned in Oregon over the last 10 months, all of them in the northeastern part of the state.

Oregon State Police are working the case, and rewards for information leading to conviction now total at least $50,000. Several conservation groups are part of the reward kitty, including the Center for Biological Diversity and Predator Defense.

Amaroq Weiss from CBD and Brooks Fahy from PD return to talk about the wolf kills.
