A member of the Togo wolf pack was shot and injured last week state officials confirmed Tuesday.
A Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife biologist and a Ferry county wildlife specialist located the injured male wolf Monday, according to a WDFW news release.
According to the release the wolf is injured but mobile. The officials got within 20 yeards of the animal and saw that its left rear leg appeared to be broken below the knee. WDFW will continue to monitor the collared wolf. If the wolf stops moving officials will consider euthanizing the animal.
A Ferry County rancher said he shot at the adult wolf in self-defense, Thursday. The rancher said he saw pups and heard barking and growling. He shot at the wolf as it barked and approached him, the rancher said.
