2 wolves attack dog near Twisp
« on: March 19, 2014, 06:25:40 AM »
Fish and Wildlife were called on Tues. (3/18/14) to a reported wolf attack on a residents dog up Poorman creek aproximately 4 miles west of Twisp.   Enforcement officer Treser arrived shortly and local Biologist Scott Fitkin arrived about one hr and fifteen minutes later.  The professional conflict specialist was also summoned from the Okanogan.   Treser visited with the lady and she said she heard her dogs barking a lot so went outside to shut them up.  She immediately saw 2 wolves holding one dog on the ground.  One had the head and the other had the rear.  She screamed and the wolves let go and headed up the hill into the woods.  Fitkin was very skeptical it was wolves and was suspect of neighbor dogs or coyotes.  The animal conflict specialist showed up and examined all the tracks and skuffle in the snow and quickly declared it was 2 wolves.  Agent Treser also agreed it was wolves.  The homeowner has 4 small children that play in the yard a lot of the time where these wolves caught the dog.  She had one dog caught in a WDFW wolf trap last spring next to her house.  She is frantic on what to do since she knows she cant protect her pets and if she shoots a wolf it better have one of her dead kids in it's mouth. This attack was 40 yards from her house where her boys sled during the winter in sight of the house.  She has two dogs and luckily one was still barking and warning her of the intrusion.

Fitkin was skeptical? Wow that's a shocker!  :chuckle:
In archery we have something like the way of the superior man. When the archer misses the center of the target, he turns round and seeks for the cause of his failure in himself.

Meanwhile, elsewhere near Twisp...

"Seven cougars have been shot by wildlife enforcement officers in the Methow Valley since December following attacks on domestic animals. At least five dogs have been attacked, including a dog killed on Christmas day."

Agree people should have the right to defend what's theirs and themselves from wolves however.

Pretty simple really...  Shoot both coyotes for attacking your pets.  Call and report directly to Fitkin who will confirm the coyote attack.  :tup:

I thought the Governor has allowed us to defend our pets and livestock from wolves.  :dunno: 

Shoot them, and tell the biologist to pound sand.  :tup:

That's when they would turn back into wolves and he wouldn't need a specialist to confirm.

I know Cal and have had some very interesting conversations with him, BUT Fitkin, its not hard to spot a educated Idiot! :bash:

It is time to "re-locate" some wolves and release them in downtown Seattle and Olympia!!

TWISP Wildlife officials say a bulldog was injured by two wolves outside its home west of Twisp Tuesday morning.

The incident was not likely an actual attack, but an effort to get the bulldog to submit, said Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife Sgt. Dan Christensen.
