State collars wolf from new California pack

Pamela Flick of Defenders of Wildlife says state officials’ radio collaring of the adult female in the newly discovered Lassen Pack will enable them to notify ranchers that the pack is in their area…The pack’s presence was confirmed last week. It is the second wolfpack to settle in California after the Shasta Pack was identified near the Oregon state line in 2015. “The information gathered by the collar can be shared with ranchers running livestock near the pack to help inform management, including the use of proactive strategies like increasing human presence and other tools to reduce conflicts between wolves and livestock,” Flick said.
