Following reports of death threats to state workers dealing with wolf attacks on livestock or pets, Washington’s state legislature has advanced a bill that would exempt from public disclosure information on people who report wolf attacks and public employees who respond.The bill has cleared a committee for a vote by the lower house of the state legislature..The legislation would withhold identifying information on people who report wolf attacks on pets or livestock; owners whose pets or livestock are attacked by wolves; and any state employee or contractor who responds to such reports or who “assists in the lethal removal of a wolf.”
