OLYMPIA, Wash. (AP) - The Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission will hold a public hearing this week on the protection status of killer whales and streaked horned larks.

The public meeting will be held Thursday and Friday in the Natural Resources Building in Olympia, when the commission will also discuss a proposal to restrict antlerless deer-hunting in northeastern Washington. In April, the commission reduced the number of hunting days for antlerless deer for youth, seniors and hunters with disabilities.

During the meeting, the commission will consider the wildlife department’s recommendations to keep killer whales and streaked horned larks on Washington’s endangered species list.

Also at the meeting, the commission will hold a public hearing and decide on a proposal to buy 3,600 acres in Klickitat County.
