Oregon has decided to kill members of a wolf pack in Eastern Oregon. It's the eighth time state officials in Oregon or Washington have taken lethal action on wolves that preyed on livestock. The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife has decided to kill members of the Harl Butte wolf pack in Eastern Oregon in an attempt to disrupt the pack’s behavior and prevent future livestock losses.

It marks the eighth time state officials in Oregon or Washington have taken lethal action on wolves that preyed on livestock. Rather than remove the entire pack, as requested, wildlife officials will kill two adult wolves and then reevaluate. If depredation continues, more wolves could be killed. The approach is similar to a tactic the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife began last week, when it began killing members of the Smackout Pack in the forests north of Spokane. “In this chronic situation, lethal control measures are warranted,” Roblyn Brown, ODFW Acting Wolf Coordinator, said in a release. “We will use incremental removal to giv ...

Just two years after it opened, Microsoft is shutting down its Oregon-based factory for manufacturing its Surface Hub jumbo tablets, according to a report Wednesday by The Oregonian. The plant, located in Wilsonville, Oregon, just outside of Portland, was once positioned as a symbol of successful US manufacturing. But now Microsoft will lay off 124 employees and dozens of contractors -- nearly everyone at the site, according to the report. Microsoft reportedly said it will move production of the Surface Hub -- a huge touchscreen computer meant to replace conference room whiteboards -- to where it makes all of its other Surface products. The company didn't specifically say where, but the rest of the devices are manufactured in China. The move underscores the challenges of trying to bring manufacturing jobs back to the United States, despite pressure from the Trump administration to do so. Microsoft hasn't said why it's shutting down production in Oregon. The company didn't immediately respond to a request for comment. ...
