Wolf status report
The Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission, which oversees the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, is to meet at 8 a.m. Friday in the Ponderosa Room at the Deschutes National Forest Headquarters at 63095 Deschutes Market Road in Bend. The agenda includes a presentation about the protection status of the gray wolf in Oregon, a sage grouse update and potential ocean fishing rule adoption. For more information go to j.mp/BendWolfMtg.

As their population grows and their territory expands, wolves might be coming off the list of protected animals in Oregon.

The state’s wolf program coordinator, Russ Morgan with the state Department of Fish and Wildlife, plans to present the findings of a status review for the gray wolf at a Friday meeting in Bend. In the status review, posted online last week, the department recommends the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission delist the wolf.

Gray wolves as a whole in the United States are fairly stable compared to other species elsewhere.
The thread link provided to the conservation status of gray wolves in the United States also provides population statistics. If any, focus and conservation efforts in the context of the United States are better directed towards the Mexican gray wolf subspecies, rather than any other wolves up north. These wolves can handle losses; the Mexican gray wolf, on the other hand, cannot, and, unlike its northern counterparts, suffers from a limited gene pool.
