First ever Wolf pups seen in Cascades

September 3, 2018

By Natural Resource Report,

Two wolf pups were captured on video in Mount Hood this summer. This makes it the first time a pair of breeding wolves have been witnessed in the Cascades in a long time.

The Oregonian further reports,

“Today, we let out a huge howl knowing that a wolf pack is rightly back on the landscape around iconic Mt. Hood after the species was systematically exterminated decades ago,” Josh Laughlin, Executive Director of Cascadia Wildlands, said in a statement.

After decades of hunting and trapping, wolves were extirpated from the Pacific Northwest by the middle of the 20th century and only returned to Oregon in 2009 after being reintroduced in Idaho and Wyoming.”
