From The Goldendale Sentinel in Washington:
Four wolves were found dead in Stevens County this winter in northeast Washington, but officials with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife are saying very little about the incident.
The wolves were discovered by two Stevens County Sheriff’s deputies on February 18 while they were patrolling the area of Churchill Mine Road a few miles south of the Canada border on snowmobiles. The deputies examined and photographed the animals and noted seeing no blood or bullet holes. They reported their findings to WDFW that day.
