SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) — The state has a new wolf pack, the 19th since the animals began returning to Washington in the 1990s.
State wildlife managers say part of a northcentral Washington wolf pack has split away and formed a new group called the Sherman Pack.
State wolf program manager Danny Martorello says the pack roams in the vicinity of Sherman Pass in Ferry County, north of the Colville Indian Reservation.
The Spokesman-Review reports that at the end of 2015, the state was home to at least 90 wolves and eight breeding pairs.
