    that the scientists believed there would be very little loss to the farmers. O the off chance that happened they would be compensated.

    It took a few years but losses on the ranches went up signifigantly/

    The government also claimed in more than few cases that the deaths were not the result of wolves and denied compensation. The problem was these folks often witnessed the attacks or could read the tracks and knew exactly what killed their calves.

    One of my uncles neighbors had 4 calves killed by the wolf pack, the government denied the claim so the next time he shot one of the wolves they promptly fined him for killing an endangered species and deied his claim on the calves.

    And people wonder why they were upset?
