First wolf collared with GPS west of Cascades

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.
