That's about a joke.  The sheriffs wildlife guy can't do anything without the state involved, calling them first will only delay a response by people that can legally act.

I suspect it's about providing some accountability, since WDFW is not trusted to deal fairly with wolf claims.

Calling him first ensures that somebody they trust is first on the scene.

Call one of conservation NW's range riders. They're highly trained to interact with wolves :chuckle: :chuckle: :chuckle:

I wonder how much Mitch Friedman scammed off the state for that one?

The joke is your response......were you at the Stevens county commissioners meeting ??, Do you personally know the man ??, I suspect no you werent and no you dont.  Being disrespectful and thinking you know it all are two bad traits.

Deputy meets wdfw on the scene if possible due to prior  harassment complaints and threats by wdfw. It was discussed in the meeting. Wdfw is not trusted here.

Its a sad state of affairs really, Ive always had great interactions with wdfw staff but im hearing all the older guys I knew are gone and the new guys seem to be "us" vs "them" types so i hear....but I havent met them yet in the field.

I know the cougar situation and the details more than almost anyone.  I don't have to be at the commissioners meeting petition delivery to understand what's going on there and the exact details of how it went that direction. 

Having the county accompany the state on a depredation is a waste of time and money.

Maybe a waste of time for a cougar call but probably a good ideas for a wolf depredation call  :dunno: I only know what I have read and been told but sounds like a lot of B.S. to even get a wolf kill confirmed over there. Added bonus is accountability on the actual number of calls regarding wolf kills at least local law enforcemnt would also have a list and sounds like they would get the word out whereas maybe wdfw is keeping it on the low down?

Because you trust this state over that County?  That's a true liberal statement.

What?  It doesn't have anything to do with liberal or conservative (not everything does BTW...).  It has to do with the level of expertise that I expect on a response and the ability to act.  Calling the county in addition to the state is costly and unnecessary redundancy. 

There is also a bit of a slippery slope here.  Should counties be managing wildlife?  I don't think they should, I think the sheriff should stick to public safety issues.

It is absolutely not a waste of money to have somebody you can trust on the scene.  A local representative with the best interest of the local people in mind.  Wdfw has their own best interests and the predators best interest in mind first and foremost.  People dont trust wdfw to play straight with them.  People trust jeff.

I agree with that.  WDFW has their work cut out rebuilding trust with the community.  Part of the problem is a pretty widespread misinformation campaign that people have bought into.
