Meacham Pack

Area of Known Wolf Activity

Meacham Pack AKWA

Current Meacham 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.
