Officials Say Washington Wolf Population Grew By 30% In 2014
By Sumit Passary | Mar 08, 2015 08:22 AM EDT



The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) reveals that the wolf population in Washington has increased by 30 percent in 2014.

On Friday, March 6, WDFW revealed the increase in the state's wolf population. The annual survey that was conducted by WDFW suggests that four new wolf packs have been formed in the state and most of the population is concentrated in the northeast of the state.

The survey recorded the presence of at least 68 gray wolves through Dec. 31, 2014 in Washington. As of Dec. 31, 2013, the population was 52. The survey also accounts for five breeding pairs in the region and 16 packs of the animals.

Unsworth suggests that predation attacks by wolves will increase with the spike in their population. However, the agency will work in partnership with the ranchers to avoid major loss of livestock on the hands of wolves and at the same time conserve and increase the wolf population in the state.


This ^ is the other outcome of such news.
Though this is awesome to hear, predatory attacks will likely become a rising issue. But, I'm really glad to see that they've recognized this and will work towards conserving populations in the same stretch of things..

Thanks for sharing Koa!

30% is quite an achievement.
I'm glad they're taking the necessary actions to make sure that the population doesn't spin out of control.
