No sign of wolves impacting big game

State wildlife managers say they have found no evidence that wolves have had significant impacts on Washington's big-game herds. In total, 14 wolves in 10 packs have state-monitored collars. The Colville Tribe may also have collars on one or two packs. "At this point in wolf recovery, we are not seeing anything in the harvest or survey data that would indicate a decline in deer, elk, or moose populations,"
