Judge blocks order to kill wolves in northeast Washington state | The Seattle Times

Thurston County Superior Court Judge Chris Lanese Monday prevented the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) from carrying out a kill order for wolves in the Togo pack, according to a conservation group that challenged the agency in court.“The agency cannot go out and kill wolves,” said Amaroq Weiss, a wolf advocate for The Center for Biological Diversity, after the judge granted the center’s request for a temporary restraining order. The judge set an Aug. 31 court date for a preliminary injunction hearing, which could prevent WDFW from killing the Togo wolves until a full trial. The judge’s order applies only to the Togo wolves, according to WDFW.
