Biologists find, monitor wolf pups

Idaho Fish and Game biologist Lacy Robinson pulls on gloves as she prepares to release a male wolf pup back into its den in the North Fork of the Coeur d’Alene River drainage on May 12, 2014, after collaring the pup and putting an ear tag on it.  Research methods for tracking wolf pup survival developed by Robinson are being deployed in other parts of Idaho…Chasing pups is part of the job for Robinson, one of the lead biologists on wolf pup studies for the Idaho Department of Fish and Game.  This spring, department biologists have collared 27 wolf pups from seven packs around the state, using methods Robinson developed.
