Hiking on Mount Hood? Keep your ears open for a wolf’s howl.

Wolf tracks were found in the snow on Mount Hood’s eastern slope in December, the first sign of the species’ presence in the Cascades since the famous male known as OR-7 left eastern Oregon and crossed the state in 2011. 

It's the first known Mount Hood visit for a wolf since their recovery from the brink of extinction began.

“This is history,” said Rob Klavins, wildlife advocate for Oregon Wild, an environmental group. “It shows that if we give them a chance, wolves can recover in Oregon. The potential is there to hear the howl of wolves at Timberline Lodge.”
