"The toll is about 15 cattle confirmed killed or injured by wolves between the Columbia and Kettle Rivers since mid-July."
“We want WDFW Director Phil Anderson and the Fish and Wildlife Commission to consider delisting the wolves in Eastern Washington in a shorter time frame than currently outlined in the plan,” he said. ”We have nine of the 12 packs in the state in Eastern Washington, which is more than our fair share. We want them immediately delisted in Eastern Washington.”
The state Wolf Conservation and Management plan currently divides the state into three sections: Eastern Washington, the North Cascades and the Southern Cascades/Northwestern Coast. There are currently nine wolf packs in the Eastern Washington section, three in the North Cascades and none in the Southern Cascades/Northwestern coast."
Looks like it is time to relocate a few of those packs to the Olympics to fullfill the
wolf plan and give some relief to the ranchers and hunters which make up a large chunk
of the business income for the area.
