The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife has recognized a new region in the northern Oregon Cascades as an “area of known wolf activity.” This region is home to a pack of wolves that have made their home there.
Monday’s news release from the agency was where the announcement was made.
On the reservation that is held by the Confederated Tribe of the Warm Springs, which is located in Jefferson and Waco counties, the tribe’s biologists discovered two wolves in the new region in December of 2021.
Before August of this year, when they were caught on camera by a trail camera, no one had seen any wolf pups.
The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) stated that this demonstrated the wolves had established themselves in the region and stated that the group will be dubbed the Warm Springs Pack if it still had at least four wolves by the end of the year.
When the same wolves use an area on a repeated basis and aren’t simply passing through the region, an AKWA, also known as an area of known wolf activity, is considered to have been formed.
According to the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW), wolves in the Cascades are protected under the Endangered Species Act.
