KLAMATH FALLS, Ore. (AP) — Wildlife officials are tracking a wolf they say has made its way into southwest Oregon’s Klamath County.
The Herald and News reports the 2-year-old male gray wolf is one of two to make its way into the county from a disbursed Imnaha Pack in northeastern Oregon.
Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife official John Muir called the wolf that was captured and collared in 2014 a “wandering teenager.”
He said the wolf has made its way through a large swath of eastern Oregon and most recently sent signals near a cattle ranch.
Wildlife officials notified Yamsi Ranch partners John and Jerri Hyde of the wolf’s presence, who said they’ve had wolves on the property before, but never any problems.
They said they hope it moves on.
