Washington wildlife managers continued to try and kill members of the Old Profanity Territory wolf pack this week.
On July 31, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife reauthorized a lethal removal order for the OPT pack after repeated depredations. Since then, according to a Tuesday WDFW release, no wolves have been removed and the operation is ongoing.
A lawsuit filed by two Seattle residents and supported by a Washington D.C. based advocacy group unsuccessfully attempted to temporarily block the order. A judge denied the temporary restraining order. There is a hearing set for August 16.
