I would also contact the Humane Society of the US as they have been in support with the Audubon Society of Portland in supporting an initiative introduced to the Oregon Legislature to reform current trapping regulations.

I was wondering that as well. This needs to be investigated and if someone is setting/using steel traps, this needs to be stopped before more wolves or other animals are hurt or killed.

“The personal highlight was seeing a total of 6 GRAY WOLVES at 2 different
locations in the Highlands today: A pack of 5 and a single, badly injured
animal. The injured wolf was missing a front leg (big wound) and could not use
one of his hind legs. If you know who I can contact to report details, please
let me know.”

Most likely the injuries were caused by humans and the leg was probably
caught in a steel jaw trap, which is illegal to use in Washington. I
responded directly to Stephan, but since we are the ones out there watching
wildlife, we should all be prepared to report crimes against wildlife.

According to the WDFW website http://wdfw.wa.gov/enforcement/reporting_violations.html
you can call, text, email, or report violations online. If the poaching
activity is in progress, call 911. Otherwise call 1-877-933-9847, text by
entering WDFWTIP (a space) and the Report and send to:
847411 (TIP411), email reportpoaching at dfw.wa.gov or report
online. According to the website, all reports are completely
anonymous.
