This pack was first discovered in 2008. In 2012, the pack produced 7 pups and was counted as a breeding pair with 11 members in the pack at the end of the year. In 2012, the Wenaha pack primarily used the Wenaha WMU, though monitoring data showed that time was also spent in Washington. In 2013, the pack has used the Wenaha and western Sled Spring WMUs with at least 1 individual showing GPS location data in the eastern Sled Springs unit. Three wolves are wearing radio-collars.

Within Areas of Known Wolf Activity certain preventative measures are recommended to minimize wolf-livestock conflicts. Assistance with these proactive non-lethal measures is available from ODFW and the ODA Compensation Plan. Though not required, non-lethal measures are important to minimize wolf-livestock conflicts. Should depredations continue and lethal control become necessary, ODFW’s ability to lethally remove depredating wolves will be dependent on the extent that non-lethal measures have been used.
