They should sale wolf tags at whatever price. This state is all about there money an they could make alot with that option.  I'd pay 500 per tag just to protect our big game.

Burning and looting a city, civil disobedience no arrests.  Shoot a wolf, prison.    These are the times we live in.
Well said!

If the tribes want elk to hunt in the future they better start hunting wolves, you know, for ceremonial purposes and the likes of their ancestors.

Suicide

Must have had some dirt on the Clintons

Most likely felt compelled based on the pressure that goes along with being labeled a breeding female... it's possible that she self identified as an Alfa male and couldn't handle the pressure from the pack pushing her back to strictly breeder status...

Looks like they have more reward money gathered up.

https://www.kxly.com/conservation-groups-offer-15k-reward-for-info-on-wolf-death/

SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — A coalition of conservation groups is offering a $15,000 reward for information on the poaching of the breeding female of the Wedge wolf pack in northeastern Washington state.

The wolf was found dead of a gunshot wound May 26 in the Sheep Creek area of Stevens County.

Conservation groups say the slain wolf had given birth to pups earlier this year. Because her death occurred when the pups would not yet have been fully weaned, her litter has likely starved to death. Her death also marks the demise of the Wedge pack, which consisted of just two wolves.

While gray wolves were recently stripped of their federal Endangered Species Act protections, they remain protected under state law in Washington. Amaroq Weiss of the Center for Biological Diversity says poachers have killed far too many of Washington’s wolves without consequence.

There were 132 wolves living in Washington at the end of 2020. There are 24 packs and 13 confirmed breeding pairs on lands managed by the state.

It don't matter how much reward money they throw at it.
Lost cause, isn't nobody in this county giving any info.
I would wish them Goodluck with there cause ,but they won't get any.
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.

“Slain wolf”  :DOH:  I’m surprised they didn’t say “murdered wolf.”
$5 is a lot of money if you ain't got it
