Vernon Bailey of the forest reserve. bv.roau at XVash'ngton, who has been making an investigation of the r.tvage of wolves on the ranches of the south- wet reports that In a certain part of New Mexico ha learned that a moder- at',. estimate of the stock killed hy font" wolves of which he got trace was a yearling cow or a calf every three days or approximately 100 head of cat- tle to each wolf. "Counting all as calves," says Mr. Bailey, "at the low rate of $10 a head. each wolf would nt tMs rate cost the ranchmen $1.000 a year. This estimate of $4,000 for lhe four wolves leaves out of consideration the five to ten hungry offspring of each palr, which begin to kill stock for themselves tu the fall and continue to do so as long as they live."
