Idaho wolf mortalities

Here is the list of the wolves that have been killed since wolves were reintroduced into central Idaho in January 1995.  A brief description of the circumstances follows. Two wolves that naturally migrated into Idaho and were killed are not listed.

Thus, there are eight reintroduced wolves and their offspring that are known dead for the Idaho reintroduced wolves. There are probably several more -- pups that died before they were located by the wolf team. There are also several wolves that have not been radio located, or otherwise located, for some time:

It is clear that both natural and human-caused wolf mortality has been much lower in central Idaho than in the Greater Yellowstone ecosystem.
