Washington State to Kill Wolf Pack to Protect Profits

Culling of the endangered grey wolves will eliminate one of the remaining 19 packs in the state.

The Department of Fish and Wildlife recently announced that they have authorized the killing of a group of endangered gray wolves called the Profanity Peak that are native to the state of Washington. The decision is influenced by local ranchers who have reported the deaths of five cows since mid-July. “The department is committed to wolf recovery, but we also have a shared responsibility to protect livestock from repeated depredation by wolves,” Wildlife wolf policy department’s Donny Martorello said. The wolf pack—which includes 11 members, five of which are pups—will be killed as a protection measure for what local cow ranchers see as a threat to profits. Cows are not native to the state of Washington.
