August 22, 2011

Two wolves from the new Walla Walla pack and at least one new wolf in northern Umatilla County were seen on trail camera footage taken in August 2011.

The individual wolf was seen on a trail camera Aug. 18 in the Mt Emily Unit (Umatilla County), where wolf activity has been suspected. Tracks in the area suggest this wolf may have been travelling with at least one additional wolf. ODFW will be monitoring this area for wolf activity.

Two wolves from the new Walla Walla pack were seen on trail camera footage taken Aug. 11, also in Umatilla County. The Walla Walla pack was first confirmed by track evidence in January 2011. This pack’s range is not yet clear and may partly be in Washington State.

Finally, a yearling wolf from the Wenaha pack was seen Aug. 5 on a trail camera in Wallowa County. The wolf is seen with its ear tags, which ODFW put on last August when the wolf was just a pup. These ear tags help wildlife managers identify wolves.
