U.S. Department of Agriculture Wildlife Services has suspended the hunt for two Wallowa County wolves for a month after environmental groups sued the agency to stop the destruction of the wolves suspected of killing calves on Imnaha area ranches.

Wildlife Services spokesman Dave Williams confirmed that the agency has stopped the hunt "to allow the courts to review issues" raised in a request for an injuction filed Thursday, July 1, by four oreganizations.
