SALEM, Ore. (AP) -- As Oregon's wolf population continues to grow, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife has issued a new draft conservation and management plan that establishes a new deadline for when wolves can be killed for preying on livestock.

The goal of the 160-page plan remains the same as in previous plans issued in 2005 and 2010: "To ensure the conservation of gray wolves as required by Oregon law while protecting the social and economic interests of all Oregonians."

The new plan, which faces an adoption vote by the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission on June 7, contains mostly minor changes from a draft issued in 2017, officials said.

Oregon's wolf population is expected to continue to grow and expand its range, the plan said.
