WENATCHEE, Wash. (AP) -- The state plan to restore gray wolves in Washington would allow landowners to kill a wolf caught in the act of killing livestock or a pet dog on private property.

The plan also calls for 15 packs -- as many as 360 wolves -- in the state before the lifting Endangered Species Act restrictions.

The Wenatchee World reports the plan is scheduled for final review in August by the Washington Wildlife Commission.
