Walla Walla Wolf Pack Pups

By: Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife

LA GRANDE, Ore. — The Walla Walla wolf pack of northern Umatilla County had pups this year, trail camera footage shows.

The footage shows at least two pups, but there may be more. Other trail camera footage taken in August 2011 show at least two adult wolves with the Walla Walla pack.

If at least two Walla Walla wolf pups survive through Dec. 31, the pack would be considered a breeding pair for 2011. The first conservation goal for Oregon wolf management is four breeding pairs for three consecutive years east of the Cascades.

The Wenaha wolf pack produced pups last year and in 2009 but ODFW has not found evidence of reproduction for that pack yet this year. The other known wolf pack in Oregon, the Imnaha, produced one pup this year.
