Comments on 1. Monitoring (Chapter 12.B.1):

I would suggest enlisting the assistance of students, at various levels, to help with this cause.

Sean V Owen,  Seattle WA

You need to fund monitoring so you can manage wolves properly. If you don't know how many you have you can't manage how they interact with all the other species you have to manage.


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

I would suggest enlisting a group of volunteers who are interested in wolf conservation.

Diane Sonntag,  Tenino WA

monitoring will be expensive. how will WDFW pay for this and who will preform the work?

Stephanie George,  Newport WA

it will give a gov. employee a paycheck

Duane Bernard,  Rainier OR

Must address concerns in Appendix D

Wayne Vinyard,  Glenwood WA

MORE jobs for the relatives.


Money? Who pays?

bruce oergel,  ellensburg WA

Shoot on site.

Tim Morris,  South Bend WA



Lots of money spent without revinue .

Tom Freeman,  Tonasket WA

Do not release any more wolves into this state.

Kevin Wolf,  Lacey WA

Monitoring will be difficult and will most likely underestimate populations and dispersion. The plan should realize this and should be adjusted to compensate for this inadequacy.

Everett Burts,  Wenatchee WA

Very difficult to KNOW how many wolves there actually are in our ecosystem already.

Jay Arment,  Spokane WA

Essential work to make good choices in the short and long term.

Lois Neuman,  Vancouver WA

All wolves should be tagged. With tags, the wolves can be monitored, and if one is killed illegaly, we will know, so that then we can find the person that did it, fine them ( or do whatever it is for killing a wolf ) and hopefully it will send a message to the people NOT TO KILL WOLVES.

Ka'imiloa ,  Battle Ground WA

Good idea.


Not reqired if you eliminate them as they are non-native Canadian Wolves.

Larry Hill,  Brush Prairie WA

Nothing to monitor other than the nonexistance.
