Maybe you did see a wolf, but there is zero chance it was one of the greys that came out of Canada/Yellowstone.  It could have been one of the cascade wolves that have been present forever (which is an AWESOME sighting if that's what you saw), a local idiot's domestic, or something of that nature.

If they sounded like they knew your sighting didn't matter, it's because it didn't.  I'm not trying to be rude here but everybody always wants to throw WDFW under the bus at the first opportunity without really trying to understand their processes. 

WDFW will give you plenty of reasons to talk trash about them.  No need to fabricate additional reasons.

I think WDFW are driving the bus .
In a reckless  dangerous manner with mangement of many different species.

Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

The fact they report the wolf population from 2017-2018 grew by 4 animals means I can't give them credit for any scientific basis or credible attempts at counts.  To also report less than 130 animals total in the state is also crazy.  That said I've seen over 10% of the state's population of wolves!
Do they report "no more than 130" or "at least 130"?


https://wdfw.wa.gov/news/washingtons-wolf-population-increases-10th-straight-year

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) today published its annual year-end report, which shows the state has a minimum of 126 individual wolves, 27 packs, and 15 successful breeding pairs male and female adults who have raised at least two pups that survived through the end of the year. A year ago, those numbers were 122, 22, and 14, respectively.

"minimum" but they stick to the 4 net gain.  When uncontrolled litters should be at least 25%.

The documenting requirements are what screwed us from the start. They are the perfect vehicle to slow play delisting.

I'm mostly curious what they are going to do when they are taken off the ESA.

According to our director leaving them on the ESA endangers all other animals, because they dont need that kind of protection.
