Nope.  Just a meeting advisory, you already linked to the most recent report.

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

On May 11, WDFW staff responded to a report of an injured calf in a private pasture in Stevens County to conduct an investigation. The incident occurred within the Wedge pack territory.

The investigation revealed puncture wounds and lacerations consistent with injury by wolves. The combination of bite wounds and lacerations with associated swelling, wolf tracks scattered throughout the pasture, witness accounts, and howling heard in the area is consistent with a confirmed wolf depredation.

The injured calf was monitored but died from its injuries the following day. The affected livestock producer lives near the pasture where the incident occurred. Wolves were hazed away from the calf when it was being attacked. A Cattle Producers of Washington range rider was assigned to the area.

A summary of all documented depredation activity within the past 10 months is included in every monthly wolf update

On May 19, WDFW staff responded to a report of a dead calf in a private pasture in Stevens County. A second, injured calf was located in an adjacent pasture after the first depredation investigation was completed. These incidents occurred within the Wedge pack territory.

The investigation of the dead calf revealed bite wounds, lacerations and hemorrhaging consistent with wolf depredation. Wounds accompanied by significant hemorrhaging were documented. The carcass was removed from the pasture and disposed of.

The investigation of the injured calf showed bite wounds and lacerations consistent with a wolf attack. Swelling was noted on both rear legs. The calf was accounted for and uninjured as of May 11, therefore the injuries occurred within the last week and were estimated to be at least two days old. The calf was treated for its wounds and will be monitored.

The combination of bite wounds and lacerations with associated hemorrhaging, wolf tracks, signs of a struggle, and trail camera photos provide evidence consistent with confirmed wolf depredations.

The majority of the affected livestock are in a 100-acre fenced pasture near the livestock producer’s home; they were checked daily and there is regular human presence in the area. Following these depredations, WDFW staff placed Fox lights along the pasture and an additional (two total) Cattle Producers of Washington wolf-livestock conflict monitor was assigned to the area.

These incidents are the second and third depredations in approximately one week attributed to the Wedge pack. Given that these incidents occurred with minimal, dedicated proactive, nonlethal deterrents in place and because WDFW is exploring additional avenues for responsive nonlethal deterrents and gathering more information about the Wedge pack, lethal removal is not being considered at this time. WDFW staff will continue to work with the producer and the Cattle Producers of Washington as well as continue to monitor the area to mitigate future conflict.
