On Aug. 13, the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) lethally removed the two known remaining members of the Wedge wolf pack (an adult male and an adult female). A series of WDFW investigations had shown the pack responsible for 16 depredation incidents. The last documented livestock depredation in this pack territory occurred on Aug. 1.
WDFW will provide a final report on this and any other lethal removal operations during 2020 in the Washington Gray Wolf Conservation and Management 2020 Annual Report, which will be published during spring 2021.
