New lone wolf tracked into Oregon
The wolf is about 2 years old, the usual time for young males to head out on their own, said Russ Morgan, wolf coordinator for the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife.He’s the third young male from the Imnaha Pack in northeastern Oregon to make it into central Oregon in recent years.
His GPS tracking collar showed he left the pack and wandered into Washington before returning to Oregon and going into Mount Hood National Forest.“It just started taking off in the last few weeks,” said John Stephenson, wolf program coordinator for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
Most recently, he was tracked on the Warm Springs Indian Reservation, north of Mount Jefferson, Morgan said.The wolf was captured and collared as OR-25 last year.
The first wolf recorded from the Imnaha pack in central Oregon was OR-3, who was in the Ochoco Mountains near Prineville in fall 2011 but hasn’t been tracked since.The second, OR-7, came through Crook and Deschutes counties that fall and went on to celebrated meanderings in southern Oregon and Northern California. He was the first wolf known in that part of the U.S. for many decades.
A mate somehow turned up for OR-7 in southern Oregon, and they now have three pups from last year.
