Oregon’s only confirmed breeding pair of wolves, which had established itself in Wallowa County, may be at risk. The alpha male has now been missing for close to three weeks.

The black, 115-pound alpha male is thought to be between 4 and 5 years old. In February, he was captured and outfitted with a GPS collar. The GPS collar is capable of tracking his whereabouts every six hours

"It would be rare and uncommon that he went somewhere else," Morgan said. "The radio collar may no longer be working; GPS collars have a high failure rate. Another possibility is that he is dead."

Crying I was saddened to read this article today especially since it follows many hateful ones regarding the wolf in Oregon before it.  My best thoughts with the ongoing investigation. 

RE:  "The Wolf Plan comment period ends June 30. ODFW would prefer to have the stakeholders’ comments by then, but comments from the general public can be made until Oct. 1, when the ODFW Commission meets to revise the plan."

To Comment:

Please send an email to ODFW.Comments@state.or.us. Comments received by June 30, 2010 will be considered for the draft evaluation, which will include any recommended changes to the plan. The draft evaluation should be available for preliminary review by the public in August. ODFW will present the results of the evaluation and any recommendations to amend the plan to the Fish and Wildlife Commission (the state’s policy making body for fish and wildlife issues) at their Oct. 1 meeting in Bend."
