DECEMBER 2, 2015

The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) has released the draft Conservation Plan for Gray Wolves in California(https://www.wildlife.ca.gov/Conservatio ... /Gray-Wolf) and is soliciting input about the draft.

The plan is the product of collaboration between CDFW scientific and wildlife experts, and a diverse stakeholder group that has spent many hours since 2012 to develop it. The group includes Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, Natural Resources Defense Council, California Farm Bureau Federation, Defenders of Wildlife, California Woolgrowers Association, California Deer Association, California Cattlemen’s Association and the Center for Biological Diversity, among others.

Interested parties are encouraged to review CDFW’s website with information about gray wolves in California(https://www.wildlife.ca.gov/Conservatio ... /Gray-Wolf), including the legal status of wolves under federal and state law, the migration of the first documented wolf in the state in nearly 100 years and CDFW’s announcement about the Shasta pack this summer. The website also features procedures for contacting CDFW for those who may experience wolves in the wild.

Informational workshops will be held to provide information and hear views about the plan in early 2016. All meetings will be held from 5-8 p.m. Dates and locations are as follows:

Yreka: Jan. 21, 2016
Miner’s Inn Convention Center/Best Western

Wolf Depredation Investigation Report Released

Postby rlown » Fri Dec 18, 2015 6:16 pm

Appended report:

DECEMBER 18, 2015

After a thorough investigation of an incident in Siskiyou County, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) released a wolf depredation incident report http://nrm.dfg.ca.gov/FileHandler.ashx? ... 512&inline . The incident was observed on Nov. 10, 2015. (Russ note: there are carcass parts associated in this pdf)

The report classified this incident as “probable.” That is, there is some evidence to suggest wolf predation of livestock involving at least one animal (calf).

In June 2014, the California Fish and Game Commission voted to list gray wolves as endangered under the California Endangered Species Act (ESA). The gray wolf is also listed as endangered in California, under the Federal ESA of 1973. Gray wolves in California are therefore protected by the ESA making it illegal to harass, harm, pursue, hunt, shoot, wound, kill, trap, capture or collect wolves, or to attempt to engage in any such conduct in California.

Though wolves rarely pose a direct threat to human safety, CDFW recommends that people never approach, feed or otherwise disturb a wolf. For more information about staying safe in wolf-occupied areas, including what people should do if they encounter a wolf, please visit http://www.wildlife.ca.gov/conservation ... y-wolf/faq.
Proprietary and location information has been redacted from the report.

CDFW’s draft Conservation Plan for Gray Wolves in California was made available on Dec. 2, 2015. CDFW is receiving input on the plan until Feb. 15, 2016.
