BWCC & Wolves


Our website wolf information and photos are designed to educate residents and visitors alike about wolves. Also, to encourage more people to help keep wolf packs intact and enduring in the Boulders, White Clouds and all parts of their historic range.

Our main mission focuses on designating Wilderness in the Boulder-White Clouds. But, we have followed wolf restoration with keen interest since the early 1990's. We became more involved with the wolf issue in 2000, when the White Cloud Pack was killed because of conflicts with livestock.

Polls show that the majority of Idahoans support having wolves in our state. There are only a few places left in the world where wolves can exist.

Please join us in our efforts on behalf of this charismatic and incredible animal.

Wolf dines near Stanley, Idaho—interrupts slack season in tiny mountain town
By Lynne Stone

Friday May 5, 2006. Stanley, Idaho. A large gray wolf stirred up our tiny mountain town of Stanley yesterday as it killed a runt yearling elk calf within view of the city limits. Stanley librarian, Jane Somerville, saw the wolf among the local elk herd about 9 a.m., and shortly the wolf had chosen its prey and pulled the small calf down. It was over quick. After the kill, the herd of some 60 elk moved about 100 yards away and continued to forage on the Spring grass...

Wolves return to Sawtooth Valley SNRA, Clayton packs bring new hope, tensions
By GREGORY FOLEY, Express Staff Writer

On a clear, spring day this month in the Sawtooth Valley north of Ketchum, Curt Mack, gray wolf project leader for Idaho's Nez Perce Tribe, surveyed the foothills of the White Cloud Mountains for signs of wolf activity.

"This is good wolf country," he said. "They can den in the hills and then come down to hunt. There's plenty of territory and plenty of food along the edges."

He pulled off state Highway 75 and into a lightly vegetated pasture, where he soon began to talk about the 19-or-so packs of wolves that inhabit Idaho lands, including one small group that has settled amid the forested hills near Champion Creek.

"It's an alpha female and an alpha male," he noted. "They just had their first litter with five new pups."...
