There are new postings on the current study that go up to February 4th (I did not receive an email update). Not good news. :(

No sign of wolves noted on the most recent blog posts. The attrition just keeps going on. Greg Romaneck

Greg, Great to see you on the board! Depressing news about the wolves.

On another subject, I enjoy your book "Superior Journey" and I've been meaning to buy your "Isle Royale Memories" book
For everyone else reading this, do a Google search for Greg and you will see he is an accomplished writer.

I think it's a bit early to say that.... They've only been out for a short bit and now don't have any live radio collared wolves. There were 5 in a pack on west end by Feldtman area. One of those is the deceased collored wolf so that one is dead (assuming there is no malfunction in the collar and the yet I recovered wolf is really dead).

The (2) loners are likely the last remnants of the formerly mighty Chippewa harbor pack.

wow. Looking at the 2 that came over and then comparing them to the pics of the existing wolves is a real eye opener.
