SPOKANE, Wash. The growing population of wolves in eastern Washington state does not appear to be hurting the populations of deer, elk and other ungulates.

A report issued this week by the state Department of Fish and Wildlife looked at ungulate populations between fiscal 2015 and 2017.

The report concluded that none of the ungulate populations in the assessment appeared to show clear signs of being limited by predation from wolves.

Ungulates include elk, moose, deer and bighorn sheep.

Gray wolves were hunted to extinction in Washington early in the past century. But the animals started migrating into the state in the early 2000s from Idaho and Canada. The first wolf pack was documented by DFW in 2008.

I thought they didn't do assessment of elk in the northeast? Moose seem to be infected with wolf worms.  Deer are probably just assessed by harvest stats.

This guy is a joke. Pretty obvious how he is misleading the public with that crap. Theres a reason he doesn't add the link per the source because most that don't have a clue will take his article at face value!  :bash:

http://www.capitalpress.com/Washington/20171208/wdfw-no-sign-wolves-diminishing-deer-elk

Way more info from capital press than the AP.

"It doesnt surprise me because of what I see on the ground, said Tim Coleman, executive director of the Kettle Range Conservation Group.

Coleman, also a member of WDFWs wolf advisory group, lives in northeast Washington and said he spent a lot of time camping in the region this summer.

Im not seeing much of a change in the ungulate population, Coleman said. The two (wolves and ungulates) have lived together for millennium.


Yeah real big surprise there. A wolf lover saying he spends alot of time in the woods and doesn't see a problem. Of course he doesn't.  :rolleyes:

He made this assessment from "BOTH" deer he witnessed.
