The USDA's Wildlife Service distributes funds to ranchers in the West for wolf depredation - the killing off of predators of commercial livestock. Questions have been raised about the number of predatory wolves preying on cattle and how those funds are being divvied out. 

Idaho Matters discusses wolf depredation with the Idaho Cattle Association and we'll talk to a conservation organization working to protecting Idaho wolves by working with ranchers.
