Comments on 2. Protecting wolves (Chapter 12.B.2):

We need to protect farmers livestock

Rick ,  Centralia WA

Generally agree.

Sean V Owen,  Seattle WA

They shouldn't be illegally persecuted but there needs to be lethal take included in management design.


They should not be protected in any way other than through use of hunting seasons.

Gregory R Field,  Seattle WA

should not happen

Ross MacArthur,  Cusick WA

Return to "endangered" listing.


Thye need protection

Diane Sonntag,  Tenino WA


Duane Bernard,  Rainier OR

Wolves need no protection.

Daniel Haydon,  Creston WA

Must address concerns in Appendix D. Enable immediate killing of problem wolves.

Wayne Vinyard,  Glenwood WA

Please do not!

Daniel Gitchell,  Mc Cleary WA

Should not protect wolves

James Schleusner,  Glenwood WA

Once wolves meet the minimum for delisting they should be hunted to keep the population in check.


I feel that every Licence buying person in the State should be notified by mail and a vote should determine if Wolves should be allowed to be reintroduced. I personaly feel that the Wolves that are trying to reistablish are an invasive species (not the original native wolf) and should be treated as an invasive species and they should be eliminated before they get established.

John Evans,  Longview WA

why protect them there are plenty of wolves in neighboring states and provinces

dylan peterson,  federal way WA

Kill them all now!

Tim Morris,  South Bend WA





I am absolutely in favor of protecting wolves so long as there is doubt as to their ability to maintain viable population numbers in Washington State. It is a travesty that previous management efforts failed so dramatically to take the health of the entire ecosystem into account.

Ryan Alexander Sparks,  Pullman WA

Never seen a wolf that needed protecting. Don't fool yourselves. They will spread on their own.

Raymond Borbon,  Kirkland WA

Remove existing protections now.

Jay Arment,  Spokane WA

I will not be the one protecting them so don't ask

Joe Headley,  Yakima WA


Jim Lamb,  Spokane WA

What is done in states like Minnesota, Michigan, and Wisconsin with similar populations to Wa and even less land for wolves?

Jack Hirsch,  bellevue WA

wolves should not be protected.

Michael Korenko,  Carson WA

I am more concerned with protecting deer & elk, pets, and livestock.


INFORMATION AND EDUCATION are not enough!!!!!!!!We should mobilize every one to help wolves!help wolves!don't be selfish,,they're lives! MAKE LITTLE EFFOERT WILL CREATE BIG DIFFERENCE! JUST STAND OUT AND COMMENT! THE WOLVES NEED OUR HELPS! Although I am a Chinese.I am Hong Kong people,I still care abou animals and wolves! How about people living in America,in Washington ?

kun chi lam aileen,  hong kong

They don't need protecting....they need removing!

Florence Wheeler,  Vancouver WA

Good Section.

Lois Neuman,  Vancouver WA

I urge the WDFW to support a wolf management plan that is strong enough to ensure wolves fully recover—to a population healthy enough to effectively resume their role as top predators in our state's ecosystems.

Diane Shaughnessy,  Auburn WA

why would any body want to protect wolves our for father's got rid of them for a good reason!


should not be done!

Teresa Selby,  Bonney Lake WA

Don't spent 10 cents to protect them. It is a waste because when they start their destruction you will start hunting them anyway like other states are.

Larry Hill,  Brush Prairie WA

john casebeer,  mount vernon WA
