(This is a roundup of links to reaction and more information on the discovery of a fourth wolf pack in Washington.)

Here’s what we published in The Wenatchee World on Wednesday regarding the discovery of the wolf pack in the Teanaway River Basin. http://wenatcheeworld.com/news/2011/jul/06/wolf-pack-slips-into-teanaway/

A May 7 image from a Conservation Northwest remote camera shows one of the Teanaway’s gray wolves. Click here to go to Conservation Northwest’s article.

This is a Seattle Times article written on the sighting of the same wolf pack. The Teanaway river basin is only 90 miles east of Seattle, although it is highly unlikely the wolves will move any closer to the city because wolves avoid concentrated populations of people. http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/localnews/2015516994_wolves06m.html

Hunting and fishing forums – in these two forums hunters express knowledge of the wolves’ presence in the area for years and a strong dislike toward wolves living in Teanaway as well. http://hunting-washington.com/smf/index.php/topic,79119.0.html
