Washingtonâ€™s fifth gray wolf pack has been confirmed in Stevens County.
Earlier this month, Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife (WDFW) biologists caught, marked with an ear tag and released a 2-month-old wolf pup from the pack. Biologists have since been trying to capture one of the packâ€™s breeding adult wolves to radio-collar it for monitoring. The effort to document the pack began after local ranchers reported observing three wolf pups and hearing howling in late June.
Deer Parkâ€™s 13-year-old Colton Youngblood-Munsen is taking part in the National Pony Club Festival and Championships this week in Lexington, Ky.
Youngblood-Munsen, son of Jenny Youngblood of Deer Park, earned a spot in the national event with a win at the Stanton Farm Horse Trials last September in Deary, Idaho.
He will be competing in Kentucky with longtime companion Pistol Pete, a grey 13.1-hand Welsh pony cross. They won the Inavale Farm Horse Trials last month in the final tune-up before heading to Kentucky.
