Northern California ranchers are starting to learn what it's like to live with wolves. A pack moved into Siskiyou County last summer and produced five pubs, earning the group the name Shasta Pack. Now the state has recorded its first "probable" wolf kill of a beef calf.
At the same time, state wildlife officials have drafted a conservation plan for wolves in California. The plan includes various management options, and is open for public comment to Feb. 15th.
Wolves are a protected species under both federal and California endangered species laws.
