Wolves are now living in northern Umatilla County, a state wildlife official confirmed today.

Mark Kirsch is the Umatilla District wildlife biologist with the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. He said more than one Northern Rocky Mountain gray wolf has settled in the Walla Walla River/Mill Creek system.

"When we say more than one wolf, I think we're pretty confident we have no less than three," Kirsch said.

But it's too early to say just what kind of "social formation" these wolves are in, he said,

"We know so little at this point,"Idea Kirsch said. "The source of our current efforts is to try and understand that."

Andrew Picken of Pendleton reported seeing a trio of wolves south of Milton-Freewater on Jan. 2. He even shot some video and took photos, but the animals were too far away to positively identify them as wolves.

Kirsch said tracks in the snow revealed the wolves are here. He explained wolves will travel behind one another, stepping into each other's paw prints.Love It took a while following the tracks before seeing divergent paths.
