The offering of bounties for the scalps of predatory animals has so often failed to accomplish the good hoped for that the bounty plan has lost favor iu many localities. The Wool Growers’ Associa tion of Oregon has just gone on record at its recent meeting at Tlfe Dulles as favor ing the abandonment of the bounty ays tem and substituting the system of kill ing the animals by private effort and employment of professional hunters. The Assciation will take up the work, and ask assistance from the National Association. J. N. Burges, President of the Associa tion, estmates that Oregon sheep owners lost the last year $250,000 by predatory animals, and the loss of other farm stock, including poultry, would increase the loss too half a million dollars. The United States Forest Service has demonstrated efficent work can be done by trained hunters who are sent to the ranges to make a special business of kill ing wolves, and such other denizens of the forest as prey on flocks of sheep. A number of such hunters are now at work, and they are ridding some of the ranges very fast of the animals which do so much damage each year. Wolves are tracked to their dens, the pick and shovel as well as the rifle are brought into play A campaign of that kind strikes at the evil. So vast however, is the western count try that the work of a few hunters can give only local relief ; but if State Stock Growers’ Association go at in earnest as Oregon organizations proposes, the war will soon grow decidedly interesting for the four-footed skulkers that have grown fat on mutton, pork, veal, and poultry.
