Washington Ag Today — The Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission is meeting December 2nd and 3rd in Olympia and on the third will consider adoption of a plan to guide state conservation and management of gray wolves.

Key aspects of the wolf plan recommended by the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife would establish recovery objectives for gray wolves in Washington, along with strategies for addressing their interaction with livestock and wildlife such as deer and elk.

The Department of Fish and Wildlife held 19 public meetings on the proposed plan and the Commission held four public workshops so there will be not additional public comments December 3rd.
