Klamath County

Area of Known Wolf Activity

Klamath County AKWA Map

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. Wolves in Klamath County are currently listed as endangered under the Federal Endangered Species Act, so all management related to harassment and take of wolves is regulated by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, not ODFW.

The Indigo Pack spends most of its time in Douglas County.  See Douglas County AKWA for more information.

 

LAS13/OR115 Timeline

2022

April 19, 2022 – In 2021, two wolves, LAS13 and OR115, were documented in the area during the winter count and were not counted as a breeding pair.

2021

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.

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.

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.

Rogue

2022

The Rogue Pack spends part of its time in Jackson County.  See Jackson County AKWA for more information.

 

Upper Deschutes

2022

July 20, 2022 – A new AKWA has been designated in the Upper Deschutes wildlife management unit (Deschutes and Klamath Counties). Since August of 2021, there have been public reports of wolf activity in this area and one wolf was counted in the 2021 annual count. Remote camera photographs of an adult wolf with pups taken in July 2022 established that wolves have become resident in this area, prompting the designation of this AKWA.
