An adult male wolf was captured and outfitted with a satellite-tracking collar in northern Pend Oreille Co. The collar will help state biologists monitor Washington's second confirmed wolf pack which has been named the "Diamond Pack." The 105-pound wolf is believed to be the pack's alpha male. Two pups were also caught, outfitted with ear tags and released. The wolves were caught in padded leg traps. The size of the pack is unknown at this time. Four pups, already coyote-sized, were on a recent picture taken by the motion-sensor camera.

The wolf looks so drugged and disorientated.Broken Heart  The antenna sticking out the top of that huge awful collar.Sad  The official has no protective gloves while handling the wolf in the photo.  I wonder if that could be potentially harmful to the wild wolf.Watching from the sidelines 

I think that the collaring is more for "control" purposes so they can find them should any predation occur rather than a helpful "eye" purposes because there are non-intrusive howlboxes and fur catching pads that are very informative but don't allow for control (killing the wolf).

 Yes, to me too the wolf  wasn't looking good and if what you say means  that the wild wolf and his pack will not be protected with that thing from killing of wolves  that is unnecessary torture for him,specially if he has to wear it foreverSad

Say Chris are all satellite-tracking collars that big?Watching from the sidelines Seams to me that could enter fear with their daily living and hunting. Watching from the sidelines
