Exciting News! - a wolf pack has been documented living in the Methow Valley in the north-central Cascade Mountains of Washington! (which is only about a four hour drive / 80 miles from Alderleaf)
Here's the link to the Conservation Northwest announcement:
Wolf Pack Confirmed in North Central Washington
I've found evidence of dispersing individual wolves in the Cascades here and there over the last ten years, though no evidence of resident animals. Its so exciting to know there is now an established pack!
