Although never mentioned is the mortality rate - For instance, the average age of survival is 3 years. With supposed 10 breeding pairs, WA has 5 more to go before taken off ESL. As MN and other places have shown, pops level off, and reduce at times.

Doubling to 51 persons in an entire state is insignificant.

Almost none of you live in a single square mile where there is only 51 people. 71,300 square miles of state, with Cascades, Olympics, Kettles, and Blues Mts. and other areas wild enough to sustain wolves.

We know of wolves swimming from Oregon, crossing from Idaho, and moving from BC. Wolves also reverse their directions, heading out when dispersing. This tiny number could be 100 times larger, and still so few wolves would exist there as to be extremely rare.
