WASHINGTON WOLF INFORMATION

We thank the many individuals who have forwarded wolf news reports, photos and other wolf information to make this site a more complete source of wolf information.

WASHINGTON WOLF PLAN

The Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife (WDFW) is developing the Washington Wolf Plan. The future of wolf management in Washington will be guided by this Wolf Plan. There are several important issues which the plan currently fails to properly address.

March 2010 Peer Review

Letter to Washington Wildlife Commission                             March 22, 2010

RE: Washington Wolf Plan Peer Review

 

Dear Commissioners,

I want to thank you for carefully considering the Washington Wolf Plan before you adopt it. While I understand many urban residents want to think there are playful wolves bounding through Washington’s mountain forests, I want to remind you that rural residents, ranchers, and hunters all over Washington will have to live with the plan that you adopt. Big game herds will have to survive an additional predator on the landscape, so wolf numbers must be very carefully managed.

 

I recently read the March 2010 Wolf Plan Peer Review, I am amazed, it sounds like a pro-wolf political statement from Defenders of Wildlife, rather than a professional analysis of a wildlife management plan by experienced wildlife professionals. The Peer Review insults the intelligence of Washington residents and is a disgrace to sound wildlife management. Key issues are avoided such as Hydatid Disease and Neospora Caninum (62%-63% of Idaho and Montana wolves are confirmed infected with hydatid causing tapeworms) which threaten the public health and safety as well as the health of livestock and game herds. Throughout the document, facts and figures are used in a way to downplay wolf impacts on people, livestock, and game herds.

 

Washington’s wild game herds have been conserved and managed with sports dollars. One reviewer practically suggests that game herds be dedicated as a new wolf feeding project. The reviewers do not adequately address the impacts of reduced hunting opportunities and increased livestock depredation on Washington lifestyles, rural economies, or losses to wildlife management funding due to an inevitable reduction in hunting and license sales. The impacts on rural residents are nearly overlooked all together.

 

Reviewer 2 suggests that winter feeding of ungulates should be abandoned. This comment in itself reflects the lack of knowledge this reviewer has of modern game management and modern ecosystems. The year is not 1492, it’s the 21st century and human encroachment on winter ranges has consumed much ungulate winter range, as a result Washington has an unnatural modern environment. There is plenty of summer range; in fact summer range is underutilized. But many game herds, especially elk, need winter feeding to make up for the lack of winter range....(read the full letter)

Management Considerations

Washington is smaller in size yet has a much higher human density than the Rocky Mountain States. Washington does not have as large of elk and deer herds as Idaho, Montana, or Wyoming, so far fewer wolves can be supported. A lack of responsible management could easily allow wolves to over populate and destroy game herds faster than in the other states. Then as a result of diminished big game herds, hungry wolves may be forced to invade ranches and towns to prey on domestic animals and pets for food and because wolves carry a variety of diseases and parasites, the likelihood of disease transmission to livestock, pets, and humans is greatly increased. For obvious reasons wolf numbers must be carefully managed and wolves must be encouraged to stay in remote areas away from human populated areas. If managed in a responsible manner, wolves may fit into Washington's modern environment. Washington's citizens cannot afford for wolves to reduce big game herds, attack livestock, or spread disease. Rural economies depend on ranching income and on the annual dollars spent by visiting hunters.

 

 

Wolves Need Hunted

Currently the Washington Draft Wolf Plan does not include language specifying "Hunting" as an eventual management tool for wolves. Within a few short years wolves will obviously multiply and problems associated with wolves will most assuredly increase as they have elsewhere. If "hunting" is not included in the wolf plan language as an eventual management tool, it will be unlikely that "hunting" could be used as a management tool without court challenges from anti-hunting groups like "Defenders of Wildlife".

 

Management strategies involving "Hunting" have worked well for game species and other predators in North America and are now working for Idaho and Montana. America's hunted species are actually some of America's most abundant wildlife species, in fact, it's many of the un-hunted species who's existence is the most threatened. Hunters are good wildlife stewards with an interest in maintaining healthy wildlife populations and hunters provide the funding needed to accomplish that goal.

 

 

 

 

Cost of Wolf Management

Do Washington taxpayers want to pay the cost for professional hunters to remove depredating wolves and controlling wolf numbers after wolf population objectives are reached? Expensive predator removal programs have had to be implemented in many other states. Professional wolf hunters in Idaho reportedly have been paid $1500.00 plus helicopter flight time for each wolf removal. Why not let hunters pay the cost of wolf management with license sales and ease the burden on taxpayers?

 

 

How Many Wolves

The Washington Draft Wolf Plan requires a minimum of 15 breeding pairs for 3 consecutive years (in appropriate distribution, see page 50) before delisting can occur. Data from studies in Idaho and Montana indicate that 15 breeding pairs translates into as many as 360 actual wolves.

 

A major flaw in the plan is that until there are the appropriate number of breeding pairs in every one of Washington's Wolf Areas, it doesn't matter how many wolves are living in some areas, wolves will not be delisted and management can not occur anywhere in Washington.

 

Another major flaw, these breeding pairs must exist for three years, in all areas. Data from Idaho indicates a wolf population increases 20% to 24% each year. Perhaps there will be 30 or 40 breeding pairs in central and eastern Washington before there are any breeding pairs on the Olympic Peninsula. Under this plan 40 or more breeding pairs (could be as many as 1000 or more actual wolves) might exist in eastern Washington before the Olympic Peninsula has any breeding pairs. Wolves could easily overpopulate in many areas before population goals are met in all areas.

 

Would it not be wiser to delist when half that many wolves are confirmed (6 to 8 breeding pairs, which translates into approximately 100 or more wolves) and then manage the wolf population at that level for a test period of 3 years. At the end of the 3 year test period review the impacts that wolves have had on Washington to determine if wolf numbers should be allowed to increase.

 

 

Translocation Of Wolves In Washington

Translocation could be used under the wolf plan in the event livestock killing wolves need moved since they can not be killed under the plan, see page 52.

 

 

 

WDFW estimated wolf habitat in Washington, how will this affect you?

 

 

What Wolves Eat

Studies have indicated that 1 wolf eats 17 elk or 44 deer per year (page 73 wolf plan). At that rate the target population of 361 wolves in Washington could eat as many as 6,137 elk or 15,884 deer. Under the current draft wolf plan if wolves do not populate all wolf zones at the same time, wolves will likely overpopulate in some areas of Washington before any management can occur. Eastern Washington could end up with 1000+ wolves and that many wolves could eat as many as 17,000 elk or 44,000 deer per year in Washington before any breeding pairs are established in the Olympic Peninsula so that delisting and subsequent management can occur.

 

Hunters currently harvest an average of 8,000 elk and 38,000 deer in all areas of Washington (page 78, page 83). If wolves overpopulate, it is very possible that there would not be enough elk and deer to allow any hunting seasons. This would dramatically effect local economies and lifestyles. This is already occurring in Idaho, 8 elk areas are below goals, and IDFG is concerned.

 

Wolves also eat livestock (see page 63) and even though there are reimbursement programs, a big problem is that many wolf predations on livestock are currently being classified as "non-conclusive". Another problem is that increased predation is exhausting these programs. Either scenario could result in ranchers not getting reimbursed for their loss and this effects ranch incomes and local economies.

 

The Washington Draft Wolf Plan places too many wolves in Washington. If game herds are reduced, it's very likely predation on livestock and pets, and increased exposure to wolf diseases will occur.

 

 

Idaho Wildlife Services Statistics

Some wolf advocacy groups have pointed out that, in relative terms, only a very small proportion of livestock losses (<1% for cattle and <2.5% for sheep) nationwide are typically caused by wolves, and that other predators, such as coyotes, are responsible for many more livestock deaths than are wolves (Defenders of Wildlife 2007).

 

By determining the average number of livestock killed per each individual predator on the landscape, and comparing these figures among the four species, it turns out that individual wolves in Idaho are about 170 times more likely to kill cattle than are individual coyotes or black bears.

 

Individual wolves were determined to be about 21 times more likely to kill cattle than were individual mountain lions....(read the full story)

 

 

 

 

The Minority Position

This is a statement from concerned members of the Wolf Working Group, an appointed group of citizens who helped draft the Washington Draft Wolf Plan. The "Minority Position" is outlined on pages 246 and 247 of the Wolf Plan.

 

Wolf Working Group Minority Statement:

 

We are "unable to live with" the proposed numbers in the WWG Draft Plan. We believe the numbers are too high and will result in direct conflict with the Livestock and Sportsman Communities.

 

Therefore we feel that the WWG’s desired number of BP’s is unrealistic given the lack of suitable habitat and the much higher human population density of this state and that the requirement of 15 BP’s for 3 years (50% Higher that the USFW criteria for recovery in WY, MT, and ID,) defies common sense.

 

We therefore propose the following numbers of BP’s statewide: 3 BP’s to down list to Threatened, 6 BP’s to down list to State Sensitive, and 8 BP’s to change to a Big Game Animal. And we would eliminate the 3 year period since the state was not considered essential for recovery of wolves in the NRM (p.6119 Federal Register). This total number of 8 BP’s or approximately 80 wolves would fit in the states economic analysis as outlined in Chapter 14, "Economics" which states "Wolf numbers between 50 and 100 animals should pose little detriment to the states livestock industry as a whole…As wolf populations become larger and more widely distributed, financial impacts are likely to accrue to more producers" (p.126). "Populations of 50 to 100 wolves should not have negative effects on big game hunting in Washington" (p.139).

 

The "Draft Wolf Plan" may have reflected the "Minority Position" if the group had not been stacked with pro-wolf members by the WDFW. Because the group had more pro-wolf members the final plan represents the pro-wolf intent to saturate Washington with breeding pairs of wolves.

Your Help Is Needed

Washington's residents, ranchers, hunters, and game herds are not properly considered in the proposed wolf plan. Write and request that the wolf plan be revised to protect the lifestyle, livelihood, health, and safety of rural residents, hunters,  ranchers, livestock, and wildlife populations in Washington.

 

 

Write to the Washington Wildlife Commission

and Write Your Legislators:  Send Info Here

(1) Ask for "Hunting" to be included in the "Washington Wolf Plan" language

      as the "Eventual Wolf Management Tool".

(2) Ask for the right to protect your pets and livestock from wolves that are in

      the act of attacking.

(3) Ask for fewer Breeding Pairs for delisting until the effects of wolves on our

      Washington environment can be determined.

(4) Explain that all of Washington should not have to wait for wolves to move

      across the I-5 corridor to the Olympics before delisting other areas.

(5) Ask what is being done to prevent wolf diseases like Hydatid Disease

      from infecting pets, animals, and humans.

(6) Ask what is being done to preserve your current lifestyle, your future safety,

      and your future hunting opportunities.

(7) Ask why these important considerations are not addressed in the "Draft

      Washington Wolf Plan".

(8) Ask for a solution and response to your questions and concerns.

 

 

 

Methow Valley predation, the first agent on the scene said it was a wolf kill, but the regional biologist wouldn't confirm it as a wolf kill. Thus a total loss for the rancher.

 

This wolf is believed to be one of two wolves that attacked two hunting dogs, one dog killed, the other dog severely hurt resulting in more than $1000 in vet bills.
