Here are the pics of Oregon’s Wenaha Pack pups. Thanks Erin for providing the links!

Not sure if the two pics are of the same pup or both pups. But no matter, the pics are adorable. Those little girls look wonderful. Can you imagine anyone hurting these babies?

Remember USFWS in Wyoming recently had 10 wolf pups killed, along with their parents. Those  pups were younger then this.

  1. They are so beautiful!!
    Dear God please protect them from any dancer let them run free..
    Thanks so much Nabeki..


  2. Puppies are endearing.
    Not to rain on any parades, but, I don’t like the look of the tag on the top one’s ear.


    • I know John, it reminds me of calves that are tagged like that. We know those babies will be collared one day and it could get them killed.



      • They are so, so sweet. Nabeki I read somewhere that the black wolf is the result of mating with dogs. Do you know if that is indeed the truth? Both of these pups look like my sister’s dog, who is a shepherd mix.


      • Hi SCWG,
        It’s true!! I did a post on it several months ago.

        The pups are adorable, they look like any sweet pup. I can’t imagine how Widlife Services can kill pups like this along with their parents but they do.

        Black Wolves Result Of Long Ago Tryst With Dogs



      • Higher risk of infection and tearing the ear in later fights, possible impairing of hearing ability and provides a simplistic tool for identification.


  3. Why do we (OFG)always feel the need to dart, tranquilize these pups. Leave them be! Study from a distance using binoculars. They are beautiful and critical to the wolves return to Oregon. How many times will they be darted or trapped in the future?


    • I completely agree Marc. One blatant example, they collar and study wolves in Yellowstone all the time. I would call that invasive. But when the last little Druid female was dying from mange nobody stepped in to help her. She held the precious blood lines of the Druids but no help for her. I know there are other wolves that have Druid blood but this little wolf was special. She ended up being shot and killed after leaving the park. This is why I find it hypocritical to say they won’t interfere with nature but they interfere all the time.



  4. I agree with Marc.
    Leave the wolves alone! Treating them like livestock on someone’s farm is disgusting. I called the OFG earlier this summer about trying to photograph some of the wolves and was rudely told that they didn’t want anyone near them. Looks like they were saving the photo ops for themselves.


  5. Funny Thing: The IDFG tells hunters to use gloves when they handle dead wolves they have killed because they might get tapeworm eggs on them. Looks like someone forgot to tell the Oregon wolf biologist about disease protection.(No gloves or mask)
    When these wolves get parvo or distemper, look for an infected dog at the biologist’s house. I am always amazed at how careless wildlife biologists are about transferring disease from themselves or their pets to the wildlife they handle.


    • I noticed that right away Larry. And as you pointed out it’s the wolf that’s at risk for getting a virus from dogs. Nice handling protocol.
