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

Within Areas of Known Wolf Activity certain preventative measures are recommended to minimize wolf-livestock conflicts. Assistance with these proactive non-lethal measures is available from ODFW and the ODA Compensation Plan. Though not required, non-lethal measures are important to minimize wolf-livestock conflicts. Should depredations continue and lethal control become necessary, ODFW’s ability to lethally remove depredating wolves will be dependent on the extent that non-lethal measures have been used.
