Gray Wolf Report
The number of wolves in Washington grew to at least 115 last year — up by roughly 25 animals. According to the World, the agency keeping tabs on them soon considers changes to make it easier to kill wolves that attack livestock. The state Department of Fish and Wildlife released its annual gray wolf status report. Although the number of conflicts with livestock was not unusual, the agency hopes to find a better way to handle repeated wolf attacks by the same pack. Last summer, the Profanity Peak Pack killed or injured at least 10 cattle. Fish and Wildlife officials killed seven pack members before the problem was resolved.
