From The Spokesman-Review in Spokane, Washington:

Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife director Kelly Susewind on Friday reauthorized WDFW staff to lethally remove wolves from the Togo pack territory in response to what the department has deemed “repeated depredations of cattle on grazing lands in the Kettle River range” of Ferry County. The reauthorization allows for up to two wolves to be removed through lethal removal permits and WDFW removal efforts.

This may leave the pack with just one or two surviving members, according to the department’s annual wolf report released in April.
