Centennial Valley Range Rider Report July 26-August 8, 2015

In the past few weeks, cattle have been found dead due to poisoning, drowning, bloat, lightning strikes, and pneumonia. Constant bear activity has been occurring throughout areas with cattle, so riders have been monitoring carcasses for bear and wolf sign as well as moving carcasses when possible. If carcasses cannot be removed from areas with cattle, riders have made a daily presence through herds to prevent depredations.

Wolves have also been tracked frequently on the valley floor. One calf has been confirmed a wolf depredation on the Northside of the Valley.
