any native spicies of animal in Wa. is protected in some way or another. Many by hunting/fishing regulations. Shoot a pine squirel and see where it gets you, even though you can't walk 10 feet through the woods without seeing 15 of them. rubber boa are very common in the state and there protection has nothing to do with how many are around just that they are a native animal to Washington that the fish and wildlife dept. has no reason to lower any population of these,unlike game animals.
I know of one case in which a couple of herpers asked to gain a relocation permit from the state to save a good population from being demolished from a contruction site. They were turned down and told that they couldn't even pick them up and move them the 100 yard or so out of the way.
