This is a weekly update for the Togo pack following the lethal removal authorization by WDFW Director Kelly Susewind on June 19.
WDFW has not removed any wolves since the authorization; the lethal removal authorization is still in effect. On June 19, WDFW Director Kelly Susewind reauthorized Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) staff to lethally remove wolves from the Togo pack territory in response to repeated depredations of cattle on grazing lands in the Kettle River range of Ferry County under the guidance of the state's Wolf Conservation and Management Plan and the lethal removal provisions of the department's wolf-livestock interaction protocol. The removal reauthorization allows for no more than two wolves to be removed through the issuance of a lethal removal permit and WDFW removal efforts.
The Togo pack has not been involved in any depredations since June 6. At the time of the most recent depredation confirmed by WDFW staff on June 6, the Togo pack had been involved in seven depredations in the last 10 months (as of the date of this update, the pack has been involved in two depredations in the last 10 months).
WDFW will keep the public informed about this activity through weekly updates. The next update will be on July 9.
