From the Inlander:
For years, northeast Washington has been tussling over the local gray wolf packs, with environmentalists celebrating their resurgence and ranchers furious about instances where wolves attacked their cattle. The debate isn’t just over biology facts and economic impact figures — it’s over the public image of the wolf itself.
So Spokane resident Hank Seipp, director of the wolf-friendly Western Wildlife Council, is launching a program called Into the Woods in an attempt to showcase the fight from another angle. He and a team of volunteers are putting out dozens of wildlife cameras into local forests in an attempt to capture footage of wolves and, occasionally, cattle.
