CLARKSTON, WA — Wolf populations across Washington state have been steadily increasing. Washington Fish and Wildlife now has new information on how to best keep those populations protected. There are 122 wolves across Washington that make up 22 different packs. But even though numbers are still low, wolves are still being poached for encroaching on livestock. Three wolves were killed in 2017, and Fish and Wildlife are now asking for county input on what their options are.
