Oregon’s Imnaha Wolf Pack…December 30, 2010

Thought you would enjoy seeing the ODFW video of the Imnaha alpha female and a couple of her 2o1o pups. She looks beautiful.

Apparently the 16 wolf strong Imnaha pack had six pups last spring, not four. as previously thought.  Great to see them looking so healthy.

Oregon wolf pack has 2 more pups than expected

  1. Great news, and good to see them looking in great shape. Hopefully next year or year after we’ll see a new pack secure a new territory for wolves in Oregon.

    Also in the news, Roblyn Brown has a damn sweet job 🙂

    • I worry about them though Neb. Wolves have so many enemies.

  3. Beautiful Mom and pups!! Nabeki, weren’t the Imnaha pups collared last year? I, thankfully, didn’t see collars on this family.

    • The little two year old Wenaha male was collared and ended up being killed. That’s what happens when wolves are collared.

      • Okay, now I remember. Yes, as we have said many, many times. A collar on a wolf is a death sentence sooner or later. I am not sure when these collars were introduced, and it may be been a good idea at the time, but with GPS available to anyone and everyone, which of course includes poachers, it is time to realize these devices are not protecting wolves, but are in fact making them extremely vulnerable. As we have said so many times, it’s hard enough to be a wolf without murder weapons so readily available.

      • HI SCWG,
        I did a post on him, it was called “Beautiful Boy”. Then he was killed, not too long after he was collared. Collars are a death sentence for wolves. It’s how WS tracks them. Sometimes they will even collar one wolf in a pack so that wolf can lead them to the other wolves. No more collars on wolves.

  4. I probably worry most about the Oregon and Washington wolves. I have seen hunters already made comments about wanting to get rid of the wolves in Oregon and Washington. These disgusting vile people want to wipe out wolves, so they can be more game for them. Who are they to take wildlife away from those who truly treasure it?

    • Those wolves are so vulnerable Jon. Just trying to establish themselves. One wrong move and they could be gone, just like that. You are so right Jon.

  5. The Imnaha alpha female is a cool looking wolf with plenty of character and grace. I get upset when I see Republican politicians and voters that are so against wildlife. I was watching some of the repeal debate and I had to shut it off. It is depressing to watch politicians with the best health care in the world act so heartless and cllous toward their fellow americans. I view the Republicans as slimy and dirty to rehash this debate again, and worse to claim this is a mandate to repeal this bill for “America”. I can’t think of anything more UNAMERICAN to deny people access to healthcare. Sorry Nabeki this makes me sick

    • I, too, am disgusted by the general attitude that Republicans seem to have toward wildlife; however, I personally think the health care bill needs to go. I find the idea of forcing people to buy health insurance oppressive. I don’t want health insurance, with the possible exception of a high-deductible plan that only covers severe emergencies. See, in general, when you buy insurance, you’re more likely to lose money than save money; otherwise insurance companies wouldn’t make a profit. And while I’d be happy to help out a neighbor who really needed health care, I don’t want to pay for the kind of person who runs to the doctor every time s/he gets the flu, or needs extra care because of bad lifestyle choices (like smoking or overeating).

      • I’m going to have to agree with captain. William, I believe you are a northeasterner like me and you know that health insurance is very expensive and it makes it very hard for some to get buy when you are having to buy these ridiculously expensive health care plan. I agree people should have a health care plan. You may need it sometime or another, but some of the plans here where me and you are from are extremely expensive. That is why some are against the govt forcing healthcare down their throats. If they can’t afford to buy health insurance, they sure won’t be able to pay the fines that govt will throw at them for not buying health insurance. Just one man’s opinion about it

  6. Speaking of Oregon wolves.

    Is this very disturbing or what?

    Like

    • If I could find a better word to use for those people than disturbing, I would.I know that the internet connects us to alot of people and it can be useful and helpful tool for imformation and to keep in touch,but it certainly can be just as harmful,blind to reason,and can generate more unfound hate towards man and animal..We don’t seem to fear the things that we should..

      • Seriously Rita, I don’t believe this is really about wolves. Wolves have just become the poster boy for anti-gov. feelings. I saw the same attitudes fifteen years ago when wolves were just being reintroduced. Wolves are a convenient scapegoat, just like they were a hundred years ago. We have to keep making this point.

        For the wolves, For the wild ones,

    • Jon
      These people act as if the way they kill and injure game animals is more justifiable than predators who kill to survive. They project wolves as evil, able to thrill kill, and worse of all try to label them as foreign- when in fact they have been here way before their 3rd or 4th generation redneck hillbilly ancestors were. We have to keep countering their misinformtion about decimated game herds and all the nonsense that we saw on the anti-wolf bingo board

    • Not another one. Thanks for the heads up Jon. These anti-wolf FB pages are breeding faster then rabbits. But it’s the same old same old.
