Wolf tracks confirmed in Baker County

Tracks of five wolves have been confirmed in northern Baker County, the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife (ODFW) reported today.

Tracks were first found in late December in the Medical Springs area of southern Union County, and tracks from apparently the same group of wolves have been found three times since, including last week in northern Baker County.

"The repeated use of the area over a period of time indicates that wolves have become established and are not simply dispersing wolves," according to ODFW.

ODFW has little specific information about this group of wolves, however, including whether it is a pack that has a breeding pair. The agency intends to continue monitoring the area with a goal of eventually trapping one or more of the wolves and attaching radio collars so that animals movements' can be tracked.

The first confirmed livestock deaths from wolves happened near Keating in Baker County in the spring of 2009.

More information about wolves in Northeastern Oregon is available online at www.dfw.state.or.us.
