Despite it being illegal to kill a wolf, many famers in the area still experience conflict with the animals because of them posing a danger to livestock.“It’s great news that wolves have continued to recover in Washington, but they still have a long way to go,” said Amaroq Weiss, West Coast wolf organizer at the Center for Biological Diversity. “Strong state and federal protections are still needed to ensure these beautiful, ecologically important animals can recover fully in Washington.”Click To Share The News With Your Friends (Photo by Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife)AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMorelast_img read more
