Aggressive Bears on
Decline in New Jersey

Washington Wolves on the Hit List

Cattle ranchers in northeastern Washington are fed up, and it seems the Washington Department
of Fish and Wildlife () is finally taking action. Known as the Wedge Pack, wolves in Stevens
County have been killing cattle at an alarming rate and are now suspected to be responsible for an
estimated -plus cases of killing or injuring calves. According to one rancher, the Wedge Pack is
now feeding almost entirely on beef, and at a rate of one to two calves per day, the damage could
be devastating to ranchers.
In September, the  met with local cattlemen and ranchers and decided to heed their calls
for help. "The attempt now is to remove the entire pack," said  wolf policy coordinator Steve
Pozzanghera. With the help of  Wildlife Services, state hunters and, if needed a helicopter,
 will attempt to remove the entire -member wolf pack.
The state's management plan includes language that allows the removal of wolves known to
attack livestock; however, as the wolf is still listed as threatened under state guidelines, hunting
by the general public remains illegal.

In what looks like an
immediate success story, the
implementation of bear hunting in New Jersey beginning in
2010 has had a major impact
on the number of reported
incidents involving aggressive
black bears and humans. A
total of 56 aggressive bears
were reported this year as
opposed to 146 aggressive
bears reported from 2010-11.
The New Jersey Department
of Environmental Protection
will continue to implement a
six-day bear hunting season as
part of the state's overall bear
management plan.

Rugged and reliable.
Wherever you go.
