Comments on Proactive Measures to Reduce Wolf-Livestock Conflicts in Washington (Chapter 4.E):

NO WOLFS

Jim Steveson,  Vader WA

Keep the wolves out of this state.Stop any further moneys toward the increasing the wolf population in this state, lets have a little coman sence here

Rick ,  Centralia WA

use chemicals

john gilbertson,  port angeles WA

These should be implemented whenever possible.

Joseph Pullara,  Port Angeles WA

Use students to help agencies monitor and control such matters. It would be educational and edifying for the student, while much important data could be accumulated without having to pay state employee wages and benefits.

Sean V Owen,  Seattle WA

Protective measure to halt wolf predation on livestock should be taken

Tristan Higgins,  Seattle WA

Any proactive programs should be paid for by the WDFW or other entities and should not be a expense of time, energy or money of livestock producers. The wolves belong to the state and not private individuals. Take care of YOUR animals.

Eastern Washington has more potential for wolf-livestock conflicts due to agriculture; keep wolf population on the western side of Washington to minimize conflicts.

AL SHERMAN,  WENATCHEE WA

keep wolf numbers at a minumum

Ross MacArthur,  Cusick WA

Reduce the wolves!

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

Education, education, education!!

not intent enough

Duane Bernard,  Rainier OR

Keep cattle off USFS range land in the wolves territory.

Kathleen Fisher,  Shoreline WA

Keep cattle off USFS range land in the wolves territory.

Frank Fisher,  Shoreline WA

All actions including termination should be allowed to protect livestock, domestic dogs, and people.

Bob Hester,  Yakima WA

pro wolf individuals and groups should donate money to a fund in their honor for reimbursement of any kind of loss, including human beings.

Gary Nielsen,  Colville WA

DON'T LET IT HAPPEN AND YOU WILL OT HAVE TO DEAL WITH IT... !

FRED S Chapman, Jr,  RAYMOND WA

I would like to see a community-based conservation approach emphasized, where local residents living in wolf country have a stake in their successful return.

David Moen,  Oregon City OR

DO NOT ALLOW THE WOLF TO POPULATE TO THAT POINT

RYAN JERLES,  RAYMOND WA

Scott Nicolai,  Ellensburg WA

Keep the wolf population very low.

Tom Freeman,  Tonasket WA

Anything that prevents the use of lethal measures and promotes the presence of wolves in Washington is something that I am in favor of. Efforts to promote human wolf coexistance would be well received.

Ryan Alexander Sparks,  Pullman WA

Don't introduce more wolves in the first place. This is a purely preventable situation.

Jay Arment,  Spokane WA

Yes, but there needs to be more assistance so ranchers and others can put into place the proper proactive measures. More education, grants and assistance similar to fuels reduction programs.

Marcia avajas,  Bainbridge Island WA

keep the wolf out of Washington

Jim Lamb,  Spokane WA

this is why we got rid of them in the first place...
