Two wolves in Eastern Washington were killed in November, likely the victims of poaching.
The wolves were both females. At least one was killed in Stevens County.
According to state officials, the wolves were collared by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife. The collar on one of them had stopped working and wildlife officers checked the last known coordinate. They found the wolf shot dead.
The wolves are members of the Smackout and Dirty Shirt packs.
WDFW currently has no leads for suspects.
