Colville Tribe: "Wolves starting to have an impact"

ENDANGERED SPECIES — No wolves have been killed yet in the first regulated wolf hunting season within the borders of Washington, the Colville Confederated Tribes report.

Although gray wolves are still protected by state endangered species regulations, the tribe opened a season two weeks ago to tribal members, with an overall quota of nine wolves in three sections of the 1.4 million acre reservation.

“Wolves are starting to have an impact,” a tribal spokesman told the Seattle Times in this report.
