First wolf west of Cascade range collared with GPS

Post by DerpBacon » Fri Jul 07, 2017 12:53 pm

The Defenders of Wildlife in the Northwest are looking for any confirmations of a pack or even pups.
Washington's first wolf to be trapped and collared with GPS west of the Cascade range is now being monitored by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.

The male gray wolf is estimated to be between two and three years old. He was trapped near Marblemount on June 8.

Officials took blood samples for analysis to determine where he might have come from and what wolves are his closest kin. It will take about three months to get those results.

"They can give hope and indication that, if we've made mistakes in the past, if we've made a mess, that we can recover. Wolf recovery is a nice indication of that," said Defenders of Wildlife NW Regional Director Shawn Cantrell.

Thanks for sharing, it'll be interesting to see what results come back. It'd be great if wolves are dispersing into the region, but either way this is pretty exciting news.
