Wolves In Oregon?

Until fairly recently, we hadn’t seen a wolf in Oregon in over 60 years. Now, biologists say more wolves are coming and that’s creating quite a controversy. This Field Guide special tracks the wolf in Idaho and explores the many issues facing Oregon as we prepare for the return of the West’s most controversial animal.
