State wildlife officials confirm 8th wolf pack
An adult wolf believed to be the pack's alpha male and a pup were caught Monday in northwestern Stevens County near the Canadian border. The adult got a monitoring collar and the pup got an ear tag.
Wildlife officials say this is being called the "Wedge" pack, named for the wedge-shaped part of Stevens County between the Kettle River and the Columbia River.
Just last month, officials said the agency had confirmed a seventh Washington wolf pack, this one in southern Stevens County, north of the Spokane Indian Reservation. They're calling that one the Huckleberry pack.
