SPOKANE, Wash. — A calf in northeastern Washington was killed by a wolf, proving the endangered species is once again within the borders of Washington after being killed off decades ago, wildlife officials said Friday.

  2. A couple years back a wolf was tracked (by radio collar telemetry) from Montana, across northern Idaho and through NE Washington before disappearing (tracking wasn’t continued) into B.C.

    Just this September there was a confirmed kill of a cow calf by a wolf in NE Washington.

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."
