The state worked with US Fish & Wildlife Service staff to place a tracking collar on one of the wolves late last month. Biologists affixed a GPS device to a 52-pound juvenile female in the group.

“The GPS collar included a biodegradable foam spacer so the collar will continue to fit as the wolf grows into an adult; she is currently nearly six months old (wolf pups are born in mid-April),” ODFW said in a statement.

“The wolf is the 80th wolf collared in Oregon and the first one to be collared in the Indigo group of wolves,” the agencies said. “ODFW and USFWS attempt to place a collar on at least one wolf in a resident group or pack to help monitor their movements.”
