In early May, ODFW recovered a dead wolf in Wallowa County. The wolf was OR42 and was believed to be the breeding female of the Chesnimnus Pack. A preliminary forensic examination did not identify a cause of death and no foul play is suspected at this time. However, it is still under investigation and additional laboratory tests are being conducted. Two collared subadult wolves remain within the pack and ODFW continues to monitor the situation.
