OLYMPIA — The state Fish and Wildlife Commission on Friday adopted a rule that allows some pet and livestock owners to kill a wolf that is attacking their animals.

The rule applies only to animal owners in the eastern one-third of the state, where the gray wolf is no longer protected under the federal Endangered Species Act due to successful recovery. The rule would not apply in Chelan County, or in the Methow Valley, where wolves are still protected.
