Wolf in James Bay neighborhood of Victoria. James Bay is directly S of downtown, the Inner Harbour, or the Legislative Building, whichever is your favourite landmark.

Best.

WDFW GRAY WOLF UPDATE

A new update on wolf activities is available on the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife’s website: https://wdfw.wa.gov/species-habitats/at-risk/species-recovery/gray-wolf/updates

WDFW, in its Wolf Update of 02/10/20 wrote:
Program updates
An investigation of a range rider previously contracted by WDFW was recently reported in the news. WDFW’s statement on the investigation is as follows:

WDFW has been investigating alleged inappropriate billing of work by a range riding entity during the 2018 livestock grazing season in northeast Washington.The case has been referred to the Thurston County Prosecutor for consideration of filing charges.

WDFW has invested significant resources into its investigation and cannot jeopardize those efforts by discussing details at this time, as it could negatively impact the legal process. Public documents pertinent to this case are available through Spokane and King county courts.

Although not universally effective, WDFW believes that range riding can be a critically important means of protecting cattle and deterring wolf depredations of livestock. Many communities, groups, and individuals work diligently to make range riders available where they are needed, and we all count on range riders to take pride in their work performance; we are thankful to those who so frequently do so.

^ Thanks for the link, Sky Hiker.

While the author's tone (and the site on which the article is published) may appear on the surface to have something of a "slant" to them, Google searches on the names of Drs. Geist and Mech turn up some rather provocative information.

I haven't done much investigation yet into the background of the Dr's Heist mentioned in the article. I Have read some of his experiences with wolves in Canada. I will say he is not a fan of wolves based on his experiences or background it seems.

^ I'm not so sure that's the case. Reading what I did, it appears he formerly had a better opinion of them until he moved to Vancouver Island, after which his views changed.
Mech, on the other hand, appears to have taken a fairly reasoned (and perhaps somewhat ambivalent) position, which I find intriguing.
If the information found about both gentlemen with a simple Google search can be taken at face value, they both most certainly have the credentials to offer informed and valid opinions, which is more than can be said for those making the greatest amount of noise on this issue.

WDFW NEWS RELEASE

WDFW uses drone to study predators and prey in wild lands of Stevens and Pend Oreille counties


The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) and collaborating partners will fly a drone over northeast Washington wild lands during the week starting February 16.

WDFW and University of Washington biologists will use the drone to film landscapes and work sites associated with the Predator-Prey Project, a five-year research effort that began in the winter of 2016-17. Researchers working with the project are studying the impact to ungulates (mule deer, white-tailed deer, and elk) from wolves and other carnivores such as cougars, bobcats, and coyotes.

Using a drone for this work is less risky and less expensive than filming from conventional aircraft. Video taken by the drone will be used in an education-outreach film, available in late 2020, that will describe the data collection process, and how the data will inform wildlife management decisions.

Drone flights will take place in Game Management Units 117 and 121 in Stevens and Pend Oreille counties. Exact locations, flight times and days will be dictated by weather conditions and animal distributions. The flights will take place mostly on public land. Drone pilots will avoid private land and human habitation when possible.

The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife is the state agency tasked with preserving, protecting and perpetuating fish, wildlife and ecosystems, while providing sustainable fishing, hunting, and other recreation opportunities.
