ENDANGERED SPECIES — Gray wolves — possibly a pack– appear to be checking out territory west of the Cascades in eastern Skagit County, according to photos, tracks and other sign, federal officials say.If observations prove to be true, a pack in Western Washington would be a leap toward delisting wolves from state and federal endangered species protections.Currently, wolves are flourishing in northeastern Washington. But packs must be established in two other zones of the state before delisting can be considered.Photos of wolves taken by a Skagit County resident near Marblemount were published Tuesday by KING-5 TV.
