Oregon’s Imnaha Pack Alpha Male Found!! And the Wenaha Pack Has Pups!!

Imnaha Pack Alpha Male (caught on a trail camera)  HOWLS!!

Finally good wolf news!  Oregon’s Imnaha pack alpha male, who’s been missing since May 31, has been spotted on a trail camera, still wearing his collar. The collar must be malfunctioning. 

AND Oregon’s Wenaha wolf pack has two confirmed pups and there may be more. The two pups were trapped (that must have been stressful for them), checked over, weighed and sent on their way. ODFW states they will be releasing  pics of the babies soon. Can’t wait!!

Two New Wolf Pups In Eastern Oregon

August 23, 2010By Dennis Newman

The Wenaha wolf pack in Northeast Oregon has produced at least two pups this season. ODFW confirmed the news this afternoon. They appear to the first pups born to the Wenaha pack.

And there’s some good news to report on Oregon’s other wolf pack. After being missing for almost three months, the alpha male of the Imnaha pack has been located.

As for the alpha male of the Imnaha pack, he’s finally been recorded on a trail camera. The image is the first we’ve seen or heard of him since May 31st. ODFW says the photo shows him wearing his tracking collar. So it’s a safe bet that the collar is broken and wasn’t able to transmit information about his location. ODFW also plans to release that photo later today.
