Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife wolf coordinator Russ Morgan heard at least two adults and two pups answer his howls under a bright moon in the predawn hours Friday on the Umatilla National Forest in northern Union County.
"After searching and monitoring and surveying for two years, doing this - to actually confirm multiple wolves - was a bit of a surprise," Morgan said from his office in La Grande. "We are talking about a very rare animal in the state of Oregon. That makes locating them difficult. It is satisfying to see part of that effort pay off."
