The Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission adopted rules to amend the state's Wolf Management Plan.

It will make Oregon the only state in the West where killing wolves can be a last resort after they attack livestock.

The rules require ranchers to show they have taken non-lethal steps, such as alarm boxes and low strings of fluttering plastic flags known as fladdery, to protect their herds before the state will send out a hunter to kill a wolf. There must also be hard evidence, such as GPS data showing a radio-collared wolf was in the area when a cow was killed, that wolves have attacked four times.

In return, ranchers get new rights to shoot wolves they see attacking their herd, but only if those non-lethal protections are in place, and attacks have become chronic.
