Catherine Pack

Area of Known Wolf Activity

Catherine Pair AKWA

Current Catherine Pack AKWA map (pdf)

Within Areas of Known Wolf Activity (AKWA) certain preventative measures are recommended to minimize wolf-livestock conflicts. Though not required, non-lethal measures are important to reduce depredation.  If depredation becomes chronic 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 and documented.  Information about specific wolf-livestock conflicts can be found on the Wolf and Livestock Updates page.

Pack Timeline


March 4, 2016 – From the 2015 Oregon Wolf Conservation and Management Annual Report

OR24 and OR27 formed a pair bond in July 2014. In 2015 they produced 2 pups that survived to the end of the year and are counted as a breeding pair. The pack used an area of 293 mi2 primarily in Catherine Creek Unit and 64% of location data points were on public lands.


January 27, 2015 OR24 and OR27 are 2 year-old radio-collared wolves from the Snake River (OR24) and Minam (OR27) packs. The wolves dispersed from their natal packs and paired in July, 2014. Since that time the pair has been located in the upper elevation forested portions of the Keating and Catherine Creek Wildlife Management Units, with most locations occurring within the Eagle Cap Wilderness.
