Wolf population growth stagnant in Oregon, illegal killings high

From Oregonlive.com:

The growth of gray wolves in Oregon remains slow, though the animals continue to expand their habitat westward, according to a new state report.

Oregon’s wolf population increased by three animals last year, rising from 175 to 178, according to an annual wolf report released by the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. It follows a similarly low increase in 2021.
