This spring’s is the lowest count since the park started monitoring wolves in the park in 1986. In the fall, the Park Service observed nine wolf packs in the area. That number increased to eleven this spring. It’s unknown whether the two packs are new or if they split off from existing wolf packs. The Park Service was able to collar a wolf from one of those two packs.
