Oregon has a new baby wolf.
A pair of wolves in western Lake County, the “Silver Lake wolves,” have produced at least one pup this year, according to the state Department of Fish and Wildlife. The parents are an 8-year-old male from the Imnaha pack and a 3-year-old female from the Mt. Emily pack.
The male had been collared but that type of device did not automatically transmit location information, and wildlife managers had largely lost track of him after fall 2011, the department said. His collar no longer works. The female has a GPS collar. Wildlife managers have used remote camera images to determine that the pair had at least one pup this year.
