Targeted wolf killings by state to begin again

OLYMPIA — Washington wildlife managers say they are ready to kill four more wolves in the state’s northeastern corner to decrease the size of a wolf pack blamed for 10 livestock deaths.

Craig Bartlett of the Department of Fish and Wildlife said Wednesday two more livestock deaths have been reported this week by the Diamond M ranch in northern Stevens County. Those deaths are now being investigated.

Officials had given the four wolves a reprieve over the Labor Day weekend, but Bartlett said they are back to their original plan.

The reprieve also came after protests from conservation groups who argued that there’s little evidence the Stevens County pack, known as the Wedge pack, were to blame for recent attacks at the Diamond M ranch.

Officials killed one wolf on Aug. 7.
