Snake River Wolf Pack Howling

SALEM -- The Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife has captured video of a wolf pup howling with other members of its pack in northeastern Oregon.

The department posted the video  on its website.

It shows a pup by itself in a forested area. Its howls are answered by other wolves in the distance.

Department spokeswoman Michelle Dennehy says the video was captured by a biologist on July 25.

The pup is a member of the Snake River pack, which was first observed in October in the Snake River wildlife management unit, which borders Idaho and includes the Hells Canyon National Recreation Area and Wilderness.

Dennehy says biologists on Thursday successfully fitted the first member of the pack with a radio-tracking collar.

    Wolves in other states are being hunted and slaughtered again to protect live stock. Why don't they do what they do in Africa and train dogs to watch over their herds? The Irish Wolf hound was bred and lives for this job.

    The sound of the wolf cry brings out a longing deep within our very souls. How can we not want to protect them...our animal brothers who share the earth with us.

    Incredible video, pretty hypocritical of the government agency to post at the same time as they (really ranchers)want the wolf gone forever. It's coyotes that play with their food, sheep or whatever - they are mainly around civilization. I know because I lived in California where the coyotes got into trash and killed small pets!!! These state people are bowing to the ranchers who rent public lands for pennies on the dollar and 10 year leases and get paid for every animal they lose!!! I grieve for them and hope the young pup found his way home

    My dog and I just watched this together and I got goose bumps and my dog loved it.

    Simply beautiful ! His pack was coming to get him, the howls were getting closer and closer with each cry, Sent chills up my spine seeing the unity the whole pack has for one another. I do not think they should be killed off, they are God's creation as well as man is. Beautiful majestic animals they are.

    There are people who keep saying Wolves are savage animals.
    But yet there is a higher percentage of death by COWS than wolves.
    Not to mention something that is rarely seen in nature, wolves will take care of any of their young. Weather its their own pups or not. Even if its a rival packs lot pups. Any wolf pup who's parents have died and left it an orphan are usually found by other wolves and raised as their own.

    This doesn't sound like a savage animal to me.

    They are such beautiful animals. And they are a major part of the Ecosystem. And without them the system would be all wacked out like it is. They are helping to straighten out the Ecosystem. They only hunt what they can eat and no more. The wolves need to be protected !! Please lets save these beautiful animals !!
