Rule Making Reference# P2022-13
The Department adopted amendments reclassifying the Columbian white-tailed deer from endangered to threatened and listing the Cascade Red Fox as endangered.
On September 22, 2022, the department staff presented the Cascade red fox and the commission voted to classify the Cascade red fox as an endangered species following an initial staff recommendation as threatened. The rule making steps were not sufficiently taken to make the change to endangered following a threatened recommendation. In order to align the Endangered Wildlife WAC with this decision, staff asked the commission to reaffirm Cascade red fox as an endangered species on January 26, 2023.
