Stevens County Cattlemens Assc reports 7 calves attacked by the Wedge pack yesterday. How will WDFW handle this one?

The pack crossed the threshold for lethal removal but wdfw has decided not to cull the pack.

Yeah Im a bit confused, I thought theyd already reached the culling point.
May my presence go unnoticed, may my shot be true, may the blood trail be short.

Amen

Yeah, they did about 10 calves ago. 


WDFW was told by Inslee to not kill them

Well we all know who controls WDFW despite all their experience and education. Inslee thinks he knows a lot more than he does and getting you campaign bankrolled by leaf lickers doesn't hurt

I think a rancher who protected his assets in the face of inaction by the government would certainly have a strong case for dismissal. The wolves in that are are no longer protected federally. He'd need to worry only about state charges and they have refused to allow removal even after removal criteria, a criteria which was agreed upon by a diverse panel, has been met, and then some. I'm not a fan of poaching. I'm also not a fan of seeing people lose their livelihood due to their elected officials playing politics. I'd certainly vote not guilty.

Far from easy finding them, assume they are on it

Is the state going to cull wolves?

Is it a matter of once past the threshhold they  "consider" culling, or are they supposed to cull?

Thursday when I was coming back from picking up bobcat traps I ran into a lone Horseman.
I asked what he was looking for. Said that he was a Stevens county cattleman and was riding to discourage any wolf attacks. I told him that he was the first range rider I had seen in all the years they had been doing this.
We had a good visit and I can say that he was very informative about the current state of area.
He did hand me his business card and asked if during my wanderings i I saw something to give him a call. I would call him with no question.

I've seen a few,  I think they've weeded out the hippies and are getting some decent folks doing it now.   Was a joke at first, and it's still a joke really there's so much ground to cover. 


I was trailing a pack of wolves once and they suddenly stopped,  made a left turn and did a half moon shape, then back into their trail they were going on originally.   

I wondered why the did that, so went to the center of the half moon and there was a border patrol sitting there bored out of his mind.   He had no idea wolves had just skirted around him.

When you say you were trailing a pack of wolves, what do you mean?
