SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — Wildlife officials are reporting that a new wolf pack has been discovered in northeast Washington's Ferry County near Profanity Peak.

The state Department of Fish and Wildlife says the range of the Profanity Peak pack is east of the town of Curlew. Remote cameras show the pack includes at least three adults and three pups.

The Diamond M livestock operation, grazing on U.S. Forest Service land, reported finding wolf-killed cattle in the vicinity of the pack last Friday.

Fish and Wildlife staff have confirmed that a cow and calf had been killed by wolves.
