Washington State is facing its first major test when it comes to wolf management. And so far, it's looking like a failing grade.

Moment of discovery

Moment of discovery

Screening of the Discovery Channel film on Cascades wolves was a moment of discovery for many. Wolves are on the return to the Pacific Northwest after nearly a century's absence. As of early July, Washington State has seven confirmed packs – two more since the film, Man vs. Wolf, was made. Here's some of what I heard after the showing: "Loved it and so did my 7-year-old daughter who watched the entire show. Afterwards she declared that wolves moved from #16 to #2 on her favorite animal list (giraffes have a lock on #1). When I asked why the change of heart, she replied, 'because wolves don't scare me anymore, they're beautiful!' Sure hope she isn't the only one who got the message."
