September 2, 2016 03:29 PM

Wildlife officials have stopped trapping for a group of wolves suspected of killing livestock on private land near Grand Teton National Park in Wyoming.

The News and Guide reports that two of the four wolves that U.S. Department of Agriculture-Wildlife Services personnel have been trapped and killed and the other two have not been seen harassing cattle.

Officials announced Thursday they would stop looking for the two remaining wolves.

Officials linked these particular wolves to attacks that killed two adult cows and injured four calves over the past two weeks.

Wildlife officials say that since the two wolves were killed there has not been any cattle predation.
