OR24 and OR27 are 2 year-old radio-collared wolves from the Snake River (OR24) and Minam (OR27) packs. The wolves dispersed from their natal packs and paired in July, 2014. Since that time the pair has been located in the upper elevation forested portions of the Keating and Catherine Creek Wildlife Management Units, with most locations occurring within the Eagle Cap Wilderness The mapped area is based on GPS collar location data between June and November, 2014. As more information becomes available regarding this pair, or if seasonal changes in distribution occur, the map will be updated. Updated 11/13/2014

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.
