Wolves back in Washington

Officials are reporting the presence of a wolf in Washington. This from the Seattle Post Intelligencer.

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.

    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.
