The Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife continues to keep a close eye on the Togo Pack in Ferry County. Early last month, WDFW Director Kelly Susewind reauthorized the lethal removal of the two remaining wolves from the Togo Pack. That order came after investigators determined the pack was responsible for several depredations in the Kettle River range. As of Friday, the WDFW says no wolves have been killed.
However, another calf was attacked receiving bite marks on both flanks, both hamstrings and on other portions of the body. The calf was treated for its injuries and later released on private pasture land. The Department has confirmed eight depredations by the Togo pack in the last 30 days, nine in the last 10 months, and 16 since November.
