Oregon has at least 173 wolves, a 9.5% increase over last year

From the Argus Observer in Oregon:

State wildlife biologists counted 173 wolves in Oregon this past winter, a 9.5% increase over last year’s count of 158, according to the Oregon Wolf Conservation and Management 2020 Annual Report released April 21 at odfw.com/wolves.

This annual count is based on verified wolf evidence (such as visual observations, tracks, and remote camera photographs) and is considered the minimum known wolf count, not an estimate of how many wolves are in Oregon. The actual number of wolves in Oregon is likely higher, as not all individuals present in the state are located during the winter count.
