Comments on Management of Wolf-Livestock Conflicts in Washington (Chapter 4.D):

NO WOLFS

Jim Steveson,  Vader WA

Farmers shopuld be able to protect there stock at any cost.

Rick ,  Centralia WA

won't happen if we don't put them in the park

john gilbertson,  port angeles WA

Use of guns should be prohibited. Compensation will be necessary at times, but limited.

Ann Soule,  

There needs to be better proof and documentation of wolf-lifestock conflicts before lethal methods are considered. Also, shared responsibility with livestock owners for the methods they employ to protect and manage their livestock must also be considered in judging whether a particular wolf pack requires mitigation. An inspection of their deterrent methods and property perimeter fences etc... should be performed with results affecting analysis.

JULIAN RUSSELL,  BRISTOW VA

I prefer the non-lethal solutions and supporting ranchers in the development of such methods.

Sean V Owen,  Seattle WA

Management should be proactive and paid for by the WDFW and not by individual producers.

Making proving a loss from depredation too difficult will only force livestock owners into illegal activity.

AL SHERMAN,  WENATCHEE WA

See number 1

Ty Brown,  Naches WA

Manipulated information that is misleading, a sales pitch for wolves. Wolves should be lethally removed that prey on livestock.

dale denney,  colville WA

Livestock owners need to realize the importance of the existance of wolves in the environment. If we want to save anything for our future generations we/they must learn to co-exist.

Livestock will always lose in a wolf-livestock conflict

Jess Kayser,  Centerville WA

I pitty the ranchers and rural dog lovers

Duane Bernard,  Rainier OR

Let the livestock people take care of conflicts with out the public being involved. Farmers should have the right to protect their livestock.

Wolves caught in the act of livestock depredation should be killed immediately by livestock owners, irregardless of wolf recovery status. Period.

IT WOULD NOT BALANCE OUT IT NEVER DOES

RYAN JERLES,  RAYMOND WA

Tax and licences to groups that support the return of wolves to pay expences that the state and private citizens may accure fron the damages this animal will does.

Tom Freeman,  Tonasket WA

Wolf population recovery needs to be the primary emphasis of any management plan, not further involvement of the state in private affairs and costs of doing business in a remote area.

Ryan Alexander Sparks,  Pullman WA

It is time for livestock to have a few limits.

Kevin O'Halloran,  Seattle WA

Concentrate on the compensation rather than alot of effort on proactive measures.

Jack Hirsch,  bellevue WA

Great chart (Table 7.).

Lois Neuman,  Vancouver WA

You can try to relocate wolves that become troublesome to livestock and farms, but I believe that many people will kill wolves that cause problems, despite the laws against it.

Ka'imiloa ,  Battle Ground WA

doug carney,  ellensburg WA
