Wolf Pack Confirmed in Northern Oregon
Wolves originally introduced into Yellowstone continue to expand their range with the potential of eventually moving into southern Washington. Wildlife officials confirmed that more Rocky Mountain wolves are moving west and setting up camp in Oregon, with a confirmed pack in Umatilla county. The East Oregonian has the full report.
Wolves are now living in northern Umatilla County, a state wildlife official confirmed today. Mark Kirsch is the Umatilla District wildlife biologist with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. He said more than one Northern Rocky Mountain gray wolf has settled in the Walla Walla River/Mill Creek system. "When we say more than one wolf, I think we're pretty confident we have no less than three," Kirsch said.
