I'm not sure who or what your comment is directed at, but there have been no wolves translocated (or "artificially reintroduced") in Washington State. They all got here on their own.

True, but a lot of the wolves in the NW can be traced back to the wolves transplanted in Yellowstone. It is a little disingenuous to say they didn't have some help. Not that you said it but I hear it often.
I think this is what people that mention them being transplanted are referencing.
I'm mot sure it makes much difference now because there are some drifting south from Canada and at this point who knows where a particular wolfs lineage started.

nwhikers member hbb posted this in another thread, but I believe it needs to be posted here as well

A War Over Wolves

published in the Seattle Times Thursday August 10. written by Lynda Mapes.

Lynda Mapes, reporting for The Seattle Times wrote:
Wolf management is expensive in Washington, costing $973,275 in 2016 alone. That includes $134,999 spent to kill seven wolves, including a pup in the Profanity Peak pack after the wolves killed or injured 15 cattle grazing in the Colville National Forest.

Cost to kill each wolf in the Profanity Pack: $19,286.00

==

Other than a "form letter" which did not address even one question asked in my letter to WDFW of 07/20/17, and in spite of my following up on 07/28/17 with a letter asking my elected State representatives to see if perhaps they might be able to get some answers, I have yet to receive any response from WDFW.
I am amazed Ms. Mapes was able to get the dollar figures above, which unfortunately don't show us the whole picture: how much money in total has been spent on this project at both the federal and state levels. I doubt those numbers above include the money spent on "wolf recovery" by USFWS. (or NPS, USFS, BLM, and DNR.)

In the meantime, your State legislature can't seem to get a budget passed, and we can't seem to adequately fund our public education system.

Pretty silly expenditure. The WDFW *could* put an emergency hunting season, and instead of losing money, they could easily make a bunch selling special tags and licenses. Result would be the same. Wolves would be removed.

"Wolf "management" has cost $5.2 m in this past biennium alone."

This money was spent by "Various state and federal sources."

(source: L. Mapes, 08-12-17)

(* Still have yet to receive any response to my letters of 07-20-17 and 07-28-17 from either WDFW or any of my three State legislators. *)
