Wolf OR12 was fitted with a GPS collar and is the only wolf in the Wenaha pack currently collared. This pack is estimated to have four to five wolves and produced one pup last year. It is not clear if the wolf collared is the alpha male of the pack.

The Wenaha wolf pack uses portions of Wallowa and Umatilla counties. ODFW collared a wolf from this pack back in August 2010 but that wolf was later found dead.
