Add another pack of wolves to Northeast Washington’s tally.
The Colville Tribes are reporting a new one, the Nason Pack, on the sprawling reservation across parts of Okanagan and Ferry counties.
That brings the number of packs there to five and 17 for the federally delisted upper righthand corner of the state.
They say the Nason includes the alpha male which dispersed from the Strawberry Pack, also on the reservation.
Tribal wildlife managers also report they were able to collar a member of the Frosty Pack. This March, it was reported to have six members as of the end of 2017 and that one was harvested last year.
The Colville Reservation and Spokane Reservation are the only two places in Washington where wolves can be hunted.
