How should Washington manage its wolf population? STAFF REPORT news@masoncoun com The public will have an opportunity to discuss wolf management ac- tivities in the northeast portion of the state with Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) leaders dur- ing a meeting Oct. 7 in Colville. The meeting will be from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. in the Colville Ag Trade Center at the North- east Washington Fair- grounds, 317 W. Astor Ave. WDFW officials will provide information on recent wolf attacks on livestock in the region, and on the packs in- volved in those incidents -- the Huckleberry pack in Stevens County and the Profanity Peak pack in Ferry County. Meeting participants will be able to share their views on wolf manage- ment and recovery and to ask questions of WDFW Director Phil Anderson, Eastern Regional Direc- tor Steve Pozzanghera, and other department staff. WDFW actions this summer to protect sheep from the Huckleberry pack are described in a question-and-answer document on the depart- ment's website at wdfw. wa.gov/conservation/ gray_wolf/huckleberry_ faq.html. More recently, WDFW officials con- firmed that wolves were responsible for killing a cow and calf at a cattle grazing site in Ferry County, within the range of the newly dis- covered Profanity Peak pack. WDFW wildlife conflict specialists con- tinue to monitor that situation. In 2011, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service re- moved gray wolves from the federal list of endan- gered species in the east- ern third of the state, but the species is still pro- tected under Washington state law.
