From The Street Journal:

Three wolves have been killed to make way for a ‘new and modern area’ at Copenhagen Zoo.

Staff at the zoo in Denmark’s capital said the three male wolves, who have been kept in the enclosure since the 1980s, were killed after their 40-year-old enclosure no longer met with current animal requirements.

From the Star Tribune in Minnesota:

Renowned Minnesota wolf researcher Dave Mech was in his early 20s and a graduate student at Purdue University when he arrived on Isle Royale in 1958 to study the predator-prey relationship between wolves and moose. Mech’s three-year groundbreaking project detailed for the first time the killing efficiency of wolves and the vulnerability of moose on the 210-square-mile Lake Superior island.

Now in a compelling new book to be launched Tuesday titled “Wolf Island: Discovering the Secrets of a Mythic Animal,’’ Mech, along with Twin Cities co-writer Greg Breining, chronicles Mech’s life and times on Isle Royale — camping, hiking and observing from a single-engine airplane how wolves and moose interact in their constant struggle for survival.

Members of the Voyageurs Wolf Project study the behavior of wolves in the Voyageurs National Park in northern Minnesota.

Earlier this week, Project Lead Tom Gable made a “fascinating observation” involving a wolf born in 2019, with a post on the project’s Facebook page saying, “This is the first time we have ever seen anything quite like this in our area.”

From in Ketchikan, Alaska:

An estimate of Prince of Wales Island’s wolf population is complete and in the hands of state and federal wildlife managers. But officials refused this week to share their numbers with a regional council tasked with advising subsistence hunting and trapping on federal land. This comes as a petition is pending to list Southeast’s wolves as a threatened species.

There will be an open season for wolves on Prince of Wales Island, state officials said. 

That was the message delivered to the Southeast Alaska Subsistence Regional Advisory Council, which is tasked with making key decisions on hunting and trapping on federal land and has a record in supporting the state’s wolf management.

WEST YELLOWSTONE, Montana — Sometimes you are just in the right spot at the right time.

Case in point, Island Park-based wildlife guide, Adam Brubaker of Tied to Nature, captured a stunning 15-minute video last week giving his guests, and the rest of us an intimate and rare look at the Wapiti Lake wolf pack as they engaged with a grizzly bear in the northern area of the Hayden Valley of Yellowstone National Park.

“I have been watching this wolf pack since it was established,” Brubaker told this week. “This is what I love about Yellowstone — that every day will be different.”

From the CBC:

A study shows grey wolves in Banff National Park don’t live much longer than those in the rest of Alberta because many are being hunted or trapped when they leave the protected area.

The paper that documents the survival of Banff wolves over three decades was published this week in the journal Global Ecology and Conservation.

From The News-Review in Roseburg, Oregon:

Much of the equipment the Douglas County Wolf Advisory Board plans to purchase for non-lethal gray wolf management was determined Monday afternoon during the board’s public meeting at the Douglas County Courthouse.

The five-member advisory board, tasked with how the county should spend $8,000 in grant money from the Oregon Department of Agriculture, approved the allocation of close to $6,000 to purchase equipment citizens can use to deter gray wolves from coming onto, or near, their properties. County Commissioner Tom Kress said the money must be spent by the end of the year.

From the Statesman Examiner in Washington state:

A Colville, Washington, man who found himself surrounded by wolves on Oct. 7 in the forest near Rocky Creek Road, just east of town, shot and killed a young male in the pack to escape.

“The man called us as soon as he managed to get back to a place where he had cell service, and the incident was investigated by the county’s wildlife conflict specialist, Jeff Flood, and the state Department of Fish and Game,” said Stevens County Sheriff Brad Manke. “Investigators went to the scene and found the dead wolf. From the evidence, they confirmed the man’s story and determined that he acted completely within the law because he was threatened.”
