Members of the Dirty Shirt wolf pack confronted a female Great Pyrenees at a home northeast of Chewlah, Wash., in Stevens County on Jan. 25.

The resident, who was not identified by the department, reported to the Stevens County Sheriff’s Office that at least five wolves surrounded his female Great Pyrenees in a field outside his home on Burnt Valley Road shortly after dark, according to wolf policy lead Donny Martorello.

The resident and his wife became alarmed when the wolves approached the dog, according to the update. The wolves surrounded the Great Pyrenees and “there was posturing and jumping,” Martorello stated.
