Seen a wolf? Report it on state's new website
OLYMPIA, Wash. — People who think they've seen a wolf, heard one howl or found other evidence of wolves in Washington have a new place to share their story.
The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife has created a website for anyone to report a potential wolf sighting. The agency's Donny Martorello says the information will help wildlife managers document wolf activity and manage the species.
Wolves have been migrating to Washington from Idaho, Oregon and British Columbia. Five wolf packs have been documented in the state, all in Eastern Washington.
Martorello says state wildlife managers will use citizen reports to help locate new wolf packs and pups during the spring and summer and capture and fit wolves with radio collars to monitor their movements.
