Bill To Require Better State Notification To Rural Communities Prior To Relocating Wildlife Approved By State House

(OLYMPIA, WA.) – The state House of Representatives approved a billáThursday by a vote of 97 to 1 áthat would ensure the stateáDepartment of Fish and Wildlifeá(WDFW) does a better job of notifying the public before relocating wildlife.

The measure now moves to the Senate for further review.

Rep. Carolyn Eslick,áR-Sultan, authored the bill that would require WDFW to alert a community’s elected leaders and hold a public hearing before moving wildlife into a new location within the state.

“Too often, public hearings are held hundreds of miles away from the communities impacted by the relocation of these animals,” saidáEslick. “We need to ensure the right kind of outreach is done to ensure residents in rural and mountainous areas of our state get an opportunity to have their voices heard on these decisions.”

Eslick’sábill would require WDFW to provide at least a 30-day notice prior to the date of the public hearing. The bill also instructs the agency to provide a brief explanation of the proposed action, species and estimated number of animals, general location where the animals would be released and potential range they would roam.

“The city I come from is at the foothills of the Cascade mountains. I can tell you as a resident in a rural area we want to know if WDFW is moving animals nearby,” said Eslick.
