Wolf Pups Born In Oregon's Cascade Mountains

Aug 29, 2018

A new pair of wolves south of Mount Hood has produced at least two pups this year. 

The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife says it marks the first known wolf reproduction in the northern part of the Cascade Mountains since wolves returned to the state in the 2000s.

A camera on the Warm Springs Reservation first captured images of the wolf pups earlier this month.  

State biologists estimated there were 124 wolves in Oregon in 2017.

Wolves are a protected species in western Oregon.
