SPOKANE — The state estimates that up to 10 wolf packs could be roaming in Washington, twice as many as last year.

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife said most of the wolf activity is in northeastern Washington, but evidence of new packs is also showing up in the Blue Mountains and the North Cascades.

The state is trying to confirm the existence of the new packs.
