New wolf pack
On April 3, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service’s volunteer wolf crew located 10 un-collared wolves in the northern part of Grand Teton National Park. FWS reported that this pack maybe be part of the Yellowstone Delta Pack. A capture operation was organized and FWS’ Mike Jimenez and his crew collared three adult wolves. In addition, a replacement GPS collar was placed on a yearling male in the Pacific Creek Pack. FWS reported that an unknown pack of 12 wolves, one with a non-functioning radio-collar, swung through the northern range of Yellowstone National Park.
“They could be one of the groups from north of the park that has no active radioed members for over a year now,” according to Ed Bangs of FWS.
