Comments on Biology (Chapter 2.C):

NO WOLFS

Jim Steveson,  Vader WA

Perhaps it should not simply be an issue of the number of breeding pairs, but rather the number of large prides, which can be more easily monitored, respected, and protected. As well, to your own admission, larger packs provide higher pup survival rates and a greater capacity for creating new vital packs.

Sean V Owen,  Seattle WA

I strongly oppose any plans to introduce wolves anywhere in Washington. Yes, I know they are already here. They will spread on on their own and will do great damage to wildlife eventually, and this should not be aided by the department.

Gregory R Field,  Seattle WA

Manipulated information that is misleading, a sales pitch for wolves.

Ecosystems can maintain their own balance with the presence of a large preditor at a far lower cost to humans both in manpower and money spent, not to mention wolves are far more efficient in this matter.

It should be noted that each individual female wolf will cycle only once each year during the breeding season. If she does not mate/become pregnant, she will not have another opportunity for reproduction until the following year.

Karen Goodrowe Beck,  Gig Harbor WA

Ryan Alexander Sparks,  Pullman WA

Biologists need the wolves to monitor and support their jobs. They will always justify the wolves.

Raymond Borbon,  Kirkland WA

The Canadian Grey wolves that are coming into the state from Idaho and Oregon are not the native wolves that were formerlly her inthis state and as a specied are not and never have been endagered or threatened in ther native habitat in northern Canada and Alaska where they evolved to persue the large herds of caribou in that area

Warren D Gimlin,  East Wenatchee WA

Wonderful presentation, very complete.

Lois Neuman,  Vancouver WA

You do not accept Hatchery Fish as Native and you should accept Canadian Grey Wolves as Native.

Larry Hill,  Brush Prairie WA
