Comments on 4. Program to manage wolf-livestock conflicts (Chapter 12.B.4):

Get rid of the wolves and no more conflics, very simple!

Rick ,  Centralia WA

Use non-lethal methods to remove problem wolves.

Ann Soule,  

There is too high of compensation for cattle losses.

Ray DePuydt,  Kettle Falls WA

Generally agree with the exception of compensation. 100% of market value makes sense, 200% of market value will lead to abuse.

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

peoples livelyhood needs to come before wolves

Ross MacArthur,  Cusick WA

Use Lethal removal

dale denney,  colville WA

Again-have a volunteer group along with an official

Diane Sonntag,  Tenino WA

Good luck. Other states have failed miserably in this task - why would I believe that you would be any better? I do not!

Keith Olson,  Quinault WA

let the livestock owners manage a program without penalties

Gary Nielsen,  Colville WA

Not enough. To little to late. Address issues in Appendix D.

Wayne Vinyard,  Glenwood WA

Nothing but problems for state

bruce oergel,  ellensburg WA

Ranchers shoot on site, no questions asked.

Tim Morris,  South Bend WA



see earlier comments

Scott Nicolai,  Ellensburg WA

Pay for loses.

Tom Freeman,  Tonasket WA

All efforts should be made to avoid the use of lethal force in the described conflict.

Ryan Alexander Sparks,  Pullman WA

Good luck... look at what happened to the plains grizzly, if they were seen at a carcase they were shot, assuming they killed it

Rick Turvey,  Yakima WA

A quick response system is essential in evaluating whether or not a depredation on livestock is wolf related or not as is education to protect livestock.

Lois Neuman,  Vancouver WA

To reduce conflicts in the Methow Valley, reestablish the elk population. Elk were a traditional source of food for the wolves.


As a cattle rancher why do you think it is a good idea to let them kill my income. go talk to the real people in idaho and montana. cattle ranchers


Looks good.


PAY, PAY, PAY, PAY till the Bank runs low.
