New Area of Known Wolf Activity – Unnamed Wolves in Catherine Creek and Keating Units
A new Area of Known Wolf Activity has been designated by ODFW in the southern Catherine Creek Unit and the northern Keating Unit. Tracks of five wolves were first documented by ODFW in late December in the Medical Springs area, after the department followed up a track report from an area landowner. Since December, the group’s tracks were relocated three times, including last week in northern Baker County. The repeated use of the area over a period of time indicates that wolves have become established and are not simply dispersing wolves. However, ODFW has little data regarding the specifics of this group (e.g. origin, reproductive status, homerange). Future monitoring efforts will focus on more location data and radio-collaring.
