three bills now pending in the Washington legislature would gut the plan and turn over wolf-management and killing authority to county officials and sheriffs who are simply not qualified to make decisions about endangered wolves.

Signed. I am in the center of the highest concentration of Republicans and anti-wolf ranchers and politicians in the state. Clearly, given the opportunity many would be killing wolves on sight. Even the local newspaper shows a definite anti-wolf bias. (The online version of the local paper is pdf only and accessible by subscription only, so I cannot post articles from it.)

If there should be even a single verifiable wolf attack on a person, particularly a child, there will be no holding back those that would exterminate the wolves again. At a recent local meeting the anti-wolf group argued that there is no evidence that wolves were ever a part of the fauna of Washington State, claiming that the premise for restoration is flawed. The Ecologists and biologists and others that stood on the pro-wolf side were unprepared for this argument and so reportedly took a loss at this meeting.

If anyone here in Washington has access to the big regional libraries and has the time to search the old microfiche records for articles that might prove there were once wolves in this state (pre 1888) they could provide that information to the WDFW ecologists and biologists, and the press statewide. Then, at least part of the anti-wolf argument could be rebutted. I am in a small town without the means to do this. If someone takes up this challenge, I suggest they have the search include old bounty notices on wolves. One source I found online make the unsupported statement the Hudson Bay trappers, with assistance from the local tribes, exterminated the wolves here by about 1881. Evidence of that would support the premise that the wolf was historically part of the wildlife here.

I live next door to Washington in BC and reportedly one of the wolf pack members was killed right on our border, but unfortunatley I can't sign either. The whole Wedge pack was killed from what I understand. These wolves ranged from BC (Christina Lake area) into Washington state. Now we're killing wolves in BC too, so I guess it was a lose/lose situation for the wolves. This is the cattle rancher lobby and it seems very strong - so the wolf's place in the ecosystem is ignored and compensation for killed calves is not even considered, it seems.
