Murderers Creek Wolf AKWA

Current Murderers Creek Wolf 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.  Assistance with these proactive non-lethal measures is available from USFWS, ODFW and the ODA Compensation Plan.  Information about specific wolf-livestock conflicts can be found on the Wolf and Livestock Updates page.  Wolves west of Highways 395-78-95 are federally listed.  The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, not ODFW, regulates all management related to harassment and lethal take where wolves are federally listed.
