Based on recent reports, Cassia County is under the threat of Gray Wolves and authorities think the species should be removed from Oregon’s endangered list. Even though the presence of the Grey Wolves has become increasingly noticeable, biologists from the Idaho Department of Fish and Game have not been notified yet of the presence of a wolf pack.

The Idaho Department of Fish and Game has recently observed that inhabitants in the Cassia County region are confronting themselves with an increasing number of Grey Wolves. This species, also known as, timber wolf or Western wolf is specific for the wild regions of North America and Eurasia. Its specimens are considered to be some of the largest exemplars with measures ranging from 36 to 45 kg.
Grey Wolves have been regarded as an endangered species because they are incredibly rare and they have very interesting physical features. Unfortunately, many more reports have been registered in Oregon since 2014. Most inhabitants have complained on attacks on livestock and some residents fear they, too, could be attacked, unless authorities take the right measures.
According to Jim Hayden from the Fish and Game, wolves have been frequently observed in the region. Yet, there is no real evidence indicating the presence of a wolf pack. Biologists will not eliminate this probability until they find out whether grey wolf packs really exist in the region or not.
Authorities plan to eliminate grey wolves from the list of endangered species as many residents have reported attacks. Jeff Bailey from the Cassia County confessed that he once met a grey wolf while he was leaving for work. The man was not injured, but he told the press that he was very afraid. He further added that he constantly hears wolves howling near his house.
