Comments on Management of Wolf-Domestic Dog Conflicts in Washington (Chapter 7.D):

I do not think that this should be an issue. The public should not have to manage the wildlife to assure the survival of someone's pet.

Ray DePuydt,  Kettle Falls WA

No comment.

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

wolves involved in conflicts should be destroyed

Ross MacArthur,  Cusick WA

Manipulated information that is misleading, a sales pitch for wolves. Should be able to lethally remove any wolves that attack pets.

dale denney,  colville WA

On public land people need to keep control over their dogs and accept the consequences if their dog is at large and harassing wildl animals. Wolves should not have to bear the burden for irresponsible dog ownership.

Jennifer Molesworth,  Twisp WA

To little to late and totally ineffective. Must address concerns in Appendix D!

Wayne Vinyard,  Glenwood WA

More wishful thinking.

Robert E Daharsh,  Woodinville WA

Direct testimony from an onsite native of Idaho has documented the kills of domestic dogs. We don't need more of the same in more populated Washington.

John Eaton,  Ellensburg WA

Who will pay?

NO WOLVES

Don't hear much about this trouble. Only once and the game dept, gave permission to shoot to kill if the chased game and livestock. Really not a conflict.

Tom Freeman,  Tonasket WA

I do not believe wolf killing of domestic dogs to be suitable reason for negative action against the wolf population.

Ryan Alexander Sparks,  Pullman WA

Already commented in another section.

Marcia avajas,  Bainbridge Island WA

Fine and/or penalize the owners of free-roaming dogs who cause these issues.

Janet Waite,  Lynnwood WA

Eduction is the answer.

Lois Neuman,  Vancouver WA

The wolf looses.

Larry Zalaznik,  Walla Walla WA
