Weekly report – September 1, 2017

WDFW documents fifth depredation by Sherman pack and removes one wolf; department will evaluate impact on pack’s behavior Background WDFW’s 2017 Wolf-Livestock Interaction Protocol describes tools and approaches designed to influence pack behavior with the goal of reducing the potential for recurrent livestock depredations while continuing to promote wolf recovery.

On August 25, WDFW notified the public that non-lethal deterrence measures were not achieving that goal in the Sherman pack territory, and that the director had authorized incremental lethal removal of wolves as another tool to address recurrent depredations.

On August 28, WDFW officials also confirmed that one or more wolves from the Sherman Pack killed a calf on grazing lands in Ferry County, marking the fifth depredation on cattle by the pack since

June 12, 2017. The depredation occurred within the Colville National Forest, in the same vicinity as the previous four depredations. Details of the investigation, including factors and evidence that enabled WDFW investigators to confirm the latest wolf depredation, will be provided in the next Sherman pack update. Protocol and management action The department’s approach to incremental removal consists of a period of active operations followed by an evaluation period to determine if those actions changed the pack’s behavior. The protocol states that once a removal operation has begun, the department will update the public weekly on the number of individuals removed.

In the week since August 25, the department has removed one wolf from the Sherman Pack, which occurred early today (September 1). As called for in the protocol, the evaluation period has begun. Evaluation The duration of the evaluation period is largely based on the behavior of the wolves. If the department confirms another livestock depredation by the Sherman pack after the removal period (i.e. a fresh depredation, not one that likely occurred during or before the removal period), the department may initiate another lethal removal action.

I have asked Governor Inslee numerous time to comment on all the packs McIrvin has killed. He remains deathly silent. He could fire Martello and Unsworth. He could stop of all of this now until all of this craziness is sorted out. The people of Washington State don’t want our wolves killed. We don’t want a welfare ranchers determining the fate of our wolves. The fact is that Inslee is ftoncthe east side. He was a state legislator and congressman representing these people. He is completely biased in my eyes and derelict in his duties as someone who is supposed to represent.the majority of people not a few ranchers. I will continue to fight this injustice.

so if I’m understanding this correctly,the same rancher brings his cows on public land to graze where he absolutely knows wolves live there, a calf or cow gets killed by wolves for food, again he knows they are there, then he gets paid from tax dollars for loss of his cattle and had wolves killed!!!! this is absolute insanity and needs to stop now. keep cattle on your own land you welfare rancher and stay out of wolves established territory you bastard and for the so called protectors of wildlife, you are all a disgrace and should be ashamed of yourselves

He is a killer, a disgrace and not too smart. Science has proven that wolves are essential to a balanced ecosystem which in turn supports human life. If you want to keep breathing support our ecosystem!!!!
