Area of Known Wolf Activity


Current LAS13 AKWA map (pdf)

Within Areas of Known Wolf Activity (AKWA) certain preventative measures are recommended to minimize wolf-livestock conflicts. Though not required, non-lethal measures are important to reduce depredation. If depredation becomes chronic 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 and documented. Information about specific wolf-livestock conflicts can be found on the Wolf and Livestock Updates page.

Current LAS13 ADW map (pdf)

Under Phase I management, 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.  Within an ADW, certain criteria must be met for an incident of depredation to qualify toward lethal control, see the West Wolf Management Zone page for more information.

Current LAS13 Wolf-Livestock Deterrence Plan (pdf)

Under Phase I management, an area specific wolf-livestock conflict deterrence plan (CDP) is prepared for an area designated to be an ADW.  The CDP will help livestock producers identify the appropriate non-lethal measures which are effective in a given circumstance.  See the West Wolf Management Zone page for more information.




February 11, 2021 – A new AKWA has been designated in portions of Lake, Klamath, and Deschutes Counties.  LAS13M, a male wolf traveling alone, dispersed from the Lassen Pack in California in late 2020.  If the wolf leaves the area, the AKWA will be removed.
