This pair of wolves was discovered in the eastern portion of the Mt Emily Unit in April 2013. Field surveys combined with information shared by area landowners showed that the pair – probably a male and female – visited two private land carcass piles near the Grande Ronde Valley. More recently, evidence has shown that the pair has moved to higher elevation forest areas. Updated 7/18/2013

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.
