The new litter has at least eight pups, bringing the pack’s total to 14 members. Others in the pack include a mother, father and four “subadult wolves” from the pack’s prior litters.

Wildlife officials are investigating the death of OR-54, a female wolf whose carcass was found in Northern California.

It had been weeks since biologists at the California Department of Fish and Wildlife were able to track the gray wolf’s movements.

Nearly four years ago in the forests of California’s rugged northeast corner, two black and brown wolves had a litter of five pups in the shadow of Mount Shasta.
