Wolf Attack at Harts Pass

Wolf Attack at Harts Pass

Accord to reports coming forth, a man was attacked by a female wolf at Harts Pass. The guy attacked shot the wolf and turned it in to WDFW.

Rumor has it there is a rather large wolf pack in the area, funny how WDFW failed to mention this info to the public.

Did he "attack" it back?

Is there any chance of an official story?  Was it a hunter or hiker?
People get offended at nothing at all. So, speak your mind and be unapologetic.

I just found out about it yesterday, and did some running around, quite sure WDFW won't be reporting this if they aren't forced to.

Any news we get will be updated here.

" In today's instant gratification society, more and more pressure revolves around success and the measurement of one's prowess as a hunter by inches on a score chart or field photos produced on social media. Don't fall into the trap. Hunting is-and always will be- about the hunt, the adventure, the views, and time spent with close friends and family. " Ryan Hatfield

Have been wolves in that area for years. Back in the 80's, had a buddy doing research up there and over to the Ross lake area. Several confirmed back then. Personally witnessed several running the Big Valley Ranch a few years ago...

  Federal Bio told me the guy was from the West Side and was a hunter.   Since he was supposedly being attacked I ask if it was shot from the front and he said "No it was shot from the side".     Since we only have 2 wolves in the Methow Valley  (the lookout pack)  it appears we now only have one.  Since this one was a female we will be out of wolves in short order.  The lookout pack really roams around since the Harts Pass area is about 30 miles as the crow flies from where they killed a deer (confirmed by WDFW last week).  They only have to cross about 3 paved roads a state highway and multiple county roads to get to Harts Pass.   I trust WDFW's figures so I know for sure the lookout pack is down to ONE.   They would never lie and I believe that.  Although , I did see something about 3 new pups.  They may go hungry.   :IBCOOL: :IBCOOL:
