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:

I got this response from KXLY:

The information comes directly from the WA Dept of Fish and wildlife. More information here http://wdfw.wa.gov/conservation/gray_wolf/

WDFW Game Division Manager Anis Aoude said that the study was an internal report and not publishing it earlier was an oversight.

 Does anyone actually believe this bull sh!t?

 Political move putting this out on a Friday as well, it's not by accident.
The things that come to those who wait, may be the things left by those who got there first!

Their data is collected from hunting reports but hunters are targeting legal bucks, not fawns or smaller dows which are more likely to be eaten by wolves.

Am I wrong?   :dunno:
