Squaw Creek - Buffalo Ridge Wolf Pack

On May 16th, 22 people gathered to learn from Idaho wolf experts Carter Niemeyer and Curt Mack. After a stop in the Sawtooth Valley and a discussion on wolf ecology at the Stanley Museum lawn, we continued to Squaw Creek, a tributary to the Salmon River. The Buffalo Ridge Pack raised six pups last year in 2002, all which survived until late May, when one was found killed -- its death is under investigation. At Squaw Creek we saw hundreds of wolf prints in the drained Thompson Creek Mine's steelhead rearing pond. The mud provided an excellent opportunity to photograph the large paw tracks. The Buffalo Ridge wolves have been dining on steelhead and the large numbers of deer and elk that winter in the Salmon River canyon. Some of our group stopped to tour the nearby May Family Bed and Breakfast where wolves can sometimes be viewed in nearby fields from the front porch.
