The Imnaha Pack was first documented in 2009. By December 2010, the Imnaha pack had up to 16 individuals and was counted as a breeding pair. In 2011, the number decreased to 5 members in the Imnaha pack. The pack produced six pups in 2012 and was counted as a breeding pair with 8 individuals by the end of the year. The 2012 monitoring data for the pack showed a 563 square-mile use area– much smaller than the 1245 square-mile territory used in 2011. Two wolves were lethally removed in 2011. Multiple confirmed incidents of depredation have been attributed to this pack every year since 2010. Currently two wolves are wearing radio-collars. Updated 11/14/2013
Current Imnaha ADW map (pdf)
When ODFW confirms wolf depredation of livestock, an Area of Depredating Wolves (ADW) is designated for the purpose of focusing non-lethal deterrent measures. In some cases, the ADW may encompass the entire home range of a pack, but in others, it may only encompass a portion. ADW maps may be modified periodically based on new information.
