New wolf activity detected in Oregon

Ukiah, Ore. – For years, people have reported wolf activity in the Desolation Creek area of eastern Oregon.  Biologists even documented single wolves in the area earlier this year.  But on December 15, biologists documented the tracks of 2 wolves in the region southeast of Ukiah…the area of grant and Umatilla counties east of Highway 395 will be designated as an official Area of Known Wolf Activity.  Within Areas of Known Wolf Activity, the state recommends livestock producers use preventative measures to minimize wolf-livestock conflicts.  Assistance with these proactive non-lethal measures is available from ODFW and the ODA Compensation Plan.
