Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife has not removed any wolves from the Togo wolf pack in Ferry County since lethal removal authorization on June 19. The state agency has also not documented any wolf depredations in the Togo pack territory since June 6.
The WDFW announced this on Thursday, July 9. In the last ten months the wolf pack has been involved in seven depredations, causing WDFW Director Kelly Susewind to enact lethal removal protocol. This protocol allows for no more than two wolves to be removed either through issuing permits or WDFW removing the wolves.
