Illegal Activities Involving Wolves or Other Wildlife
« on: June 16, 2011, 05:07:05 PM »
Hunting-Washington does not condone the illegal killing of wolves or any other wildlife. An organized and civilized society must have laws and those laws must be enforced for a society to remain organized.

It has been the policy of Hunting-Washington to allow most civil discussions. Moderators will sometimes remove comments they find and judge to violate forum rules especially if comments are unsuitable for family viewing or discussion on this forum. When comments are found that suggest illegal activity they are usually left on the forum so that law enforcement can monitor such activity.

Everyone has agreed to the Forum Rules when signing up to use this forum. Please note the following excerpt from the Forum Rules:

You agree, through your use of this forum, that you will not post any material which is false, defamatory, inaccurate, abusive, slanderous, vulgar, hateful, harassing, obscene, profane, sexually oriented, threatening, invasive of a person's privacy, adult material, or otherwise in violation of any State, International, or United States Federal law.

Great subject, not sure how many will commit themselves to posting anything.  In the field we hear of violations which are never reported.  Remember, anyone reporting violations to WDFW, do so in a timely manner, ASAP, not a week later.  Also try to include vehicle plate numbers, direction of travel, time, etc.  It's nice to see them caught in the field, makes a big splash.  Investigation consume a lot of time.

Can you clarify what kind of activities would be considered illegal when it comes to wolves? (Besides the obvious)..  For example; if I stumbled upon a den could I take pics or is that harassment?  We have free range cattle near my property, if the wolves were hunting them, am I ok to scare them off?  Lets say they have that cow down already; if I witness it? How do you want us to provide evidence that it was a wolf kill? Last time I remember in okanogan county seemed pretty obvious that the cow was killed by wolves but biologist denied it.

My Personal Opinion
I don't see how taking pictures or setting trail cams can be illegal, after all, Conservation Northwest members are doing it all over Washington. Disturbing wolves with other intentions is most likely illegal. I don't know how far you can go to protect livestock or pets, currently I do not think you can legally shoot a wolf in Washington under any circumstance unless you are being attacked, but I do not know how the law reads on that, I certainly hope the laws allow you to protect yourself or other humans.  :twocents:

Check The Laws & Report Wolf Sightings
Inform yourself by reading the Hunting Regulations, by calling WDFW, and by visiting the WDFW website. Report sightings, depredation, or any other types of wolf info here: http://wdfw.wa.gov/conservation/gray_wolf/contacts.html#guidelines

Also report any wolf info and sightings here for the public record:  http://hunting-washington.com/smf/index.php/topic,79244.0.html

I have a problem with the wolves being introduced in WA.  Not that I'm against it I just think the farmers and ranchers will have the final say and that will be it. I dont think they will get established enough for us to hunt them but hey maybe my head is in the sand.

R u a gamewarden or something???... Nobody is going to report of a wolf being shot.. Hense "Shoot and Drive Away" or people throwing sponges on the sides of road soaked in blood and meat... You u want to save the wolves then go out and pick all the sponges off the side of the road because i wont... And im pretty sure nobody else will either.  :dunno:

       :chuckle: :chuckle:   makes a big splash for the wolf lovers. Its not illegal to keep your mouth shut. Makes me wonder about people that would rush to turn someone in. IMO....worry about yourself. If your gonna lose sleep over a dead wolf, there are plenty of people who share your views. Just not hunters who actually care about our wildlife
Keep working fellas. Millions on welfare depend on us
