Commission sign notification agreement concerning wolves

CLARKSTON, WA - The Asotin County Commission is working with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife to inform residents when wolves come into the region.

The commission signed a release agreement Monday morning to be a part of a notification process for when tagged wolves enter Asotin County. The Sensitive Fish and Wildlife Information Release Agreement was presented at the multi-county commission meeting in Pomeroy a few weeks ago.

"Whenever the pack actually gets settled in Asotin County, we'd be able to have that information," said commissioner Jim Fuller.

Fuller says there are packs in Oregon that come to the Washington border from time to time. However the county is only notified when a wolf pack chooses to stay for an extended period of time in the area.
