Washington's Department of Fish and Wildlife says that more wolves have taken up residence in the state in the past year. But livestock deaths from the predators are down over the same time period.

Wildlife officials estimate 52 to 101 wolves are in Washington. Meanwhile, confirmed wolf attacks on livestock dropped from seven in 2012 to just four last year, according to the Capital Press.

Only one animal died from the confirmed attacks last year.
