Wolf Education Project International Wolf Center untitled 'Apparent wolf attack': Campers say wolf tore through campground Early Monday morning, an average-sized male wolf of about 75 pounds, matching the description of the wolf in the attack, was trapped and killed in the campground. The wolf is being taken to the University of Minnesota veterinary diagnostic lab to be tested for rabies. Also, the lab will collect samples for DNA analyses and complete a thorough medical examination to determine the health of the animal. (Courtesy Department of Natural Resources) Wildlife officials on Monday were investigating a reported wolf attack on a 16-year-old boy camping last weekend in northern Minnesota The attack reportedly occurred early Saturday in a campground along the shore of Lake Winnibigoshish in the Chippewa National Forest. The teen, who was sleeping at the time, suffered nonlife-threatening cuts to his head and puncture wounds to his face. If confirmed, it would be the first documented wolf attack of such severity in Minnesota and likely in the continental U.S. Here's what happened, according to Provost:

Seacrest Wolf Preserve - Conservation, Education, and Preservation of Wolves- Wolf Rescue Sanctuary Western Gray Wolf: U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Wolf restoration in the Northern Rocky Mountains (NRM) has been an amazing success thanks to both the resiliency of wolves and the cooperative efforts of Federal, State, and Tribal agencies, conservation groups, and private citizens; including ranchers, sportsmen, and outfitters. The most recent data available (end of 2013) indicate that the NRM wolf population contains at least 1,691 wolves, at least 320 packs, and at least 78 breeding pairs. This population has exceeded its recovery goals since 2002. By every biological measure the NRM wolf population is recovered and remains secure under State management. Long-term, the Service expects the entire NRM population to maintain a long-term average of around 1,000 wolves. The Service and our partners will monitor wolves in the region for at least 5 years to ensure that the population’s recovered status is not compromised, and if relisting is ever warranted, we will make prompt use of the Act’s emergency listing provisions.

THE WOLF ARMY UK Canis lupus 101 Howling For Justice | Blogging for the Gray Wolf Wolves Come Home to Oregon | Oregon Wild Wolves in Oregon Gray wolves (Canis lupus) were once common in Oregon, occupying most of the state. However, a deliberate effort to eradicate the species was successful by the late 1940s. In fact, trouble for wolves began almost 100 years earlier, in the years before Oregon became a state. After an absence of over half a century, wolves began to take their first tentative steps towards recovery. Become a voice for wolves: In 2006, a flurry of sightings led biologists to believe a number of wild wolves were living in Northeast Oregon near the Wallowa Mountains and the Eagle Cap Wilderness. Sadly, a wolf found shot to death near La Grande in May 2007 clearly indicated wolves had arrived in the area. After that sad chapter, wolves began to establish a fragile foothold in the state. Unfortunately, the news was tempered with additional poaching and heavy-handed state management. Wolf hunts in nearby states also threaten the region's fragile recovery. In 2010, the plan was reviewed and revised.
