Officers recommend charge in Whitman County wolf shooting

The Associated Press

PULLMAN — Washington fish and wildlife officers are recommending a misdemeanor charge against a farmer accused of illegally shooting a wolf last month.

Whitman County Prosecutor Denis Tracy tells the Moscow-Pullman Daily News that he’ll review the investigation report and the law before making a decision about whether to file charges. The wolf was shot southwest of Pullman on Oct. 12.

Under Washington law, a wolf can only be shot if it is in the act of attacking pets or livestock.

A conviction on a misdemeanor charge could result in up to a year in jail and a two-year suspension of any hunting, fishing or trapping licenses.
