A new group of wolves was discovered northwest of Enterprise, Oregon in 2019. The state wildlife agency collared a male from the group in June 2019 (OR76). Two other wolves were seen on remote cameras. The family had two pups that survived the winter, and they were designated as a pack for 2020.
The Bear Creek Pack produced two pups that survived to the end of the following year as well, when they were again counted as a breeding pair. ODFW reports data from radio collars showed a 168 square mile usage area for the pack, with 86% of location data points present on private lands and 14% on public lands.
Current Numbers: 5
Pack Status: Designated 2020
