ODFW collars latest wolf (OR-13) as pack expands

By Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife

On June 10, 2012, ODFW trapped OR-13, a two-year-old wolf of the Wenaha pack, and fitted it with a GPS radio-collar. The black female weighed 85 pounds and was captured in the Wenaha Wildlife Management Unit. She was previously caught as a pup in August 2010, but at the time was too small for a radio-collar.

Earlier in June, biologists observed at least four pups in the Wenaha pack. Reproduction was also confirmed in the Imnaha pack this month, with a minimum of four pups observed.
