"SPOKANE, Wash. -            
Washington wildlife managers spent $135,000 to fatally shoot seven of 11 wolves that had attacked cattle in northeast Washington.   
The Spokesman-Review reports the Department of Fish and Wildlife released a 200-page report on last year's effort to remove the Profanity Peak wolf pack.   
The agency reported helicopter and staff time for the aerial gunning made up most of the spending while $10,000 was paid to an area trapper."

Instead, of killing wildlife, Washington State needs to follow its mission and help wildlife.
The Department of Killing Wildlife needs to watch this video, about how the wolves transform the ecosystem and physical geography in beneficial ways.

"In 1995, the US Fish and Wildlife Service, along with Canadian biologists, captured 14 wolves in Canada and placed them in Yellowstone National Park, where they had been extinct since 1926. Over the next few years, the number of wolves rose, but that was the least of the changes that took place in Yellowstone.
The effects were more striking than anyone could have expected. The entire ecosystem of the national park transformed and it went so far that even the rivers changed. How could this have happened? Watch the clip and marvel at the amazing way in which nature works."
