OR26 is a recently discovered and GPS-collared male wolf in the southern portion of the Mt. Emily Unit (Umatilla County). Initial data from this wolf indicates that the wolf is paired and likely has pups, but further field surveys are needed to confirm this. The mapped area size is simply based on average homeranges from wolves in other areas. As more information becomes available regarding this pack, the map will be updated to reflect actual data points.Updated 06/09/2014

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.
