Wildlife experts are tracking a new pair of wolves in Siskiyou County, If they reproduce, it could mark the first time California has had two different wolf packs at the same time.
The two wolves are believed to be male and female. They have been tracked near Whaleback Mountain near Mt. Shasta and are called the Whaleback Pair.
Kent Laudon is a wolf expert with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW). Laudon said the pair could produce pups in the next month and officially become a pack. CDFW has been tracking them since November. Laudon said there is a good chance the pair will move south into Shasta County. Wolves can travel 20 miles in one day.
California is already home to the Lassen Pack in Lassen and Plumas Counties. That pack has produced pups for the last four years.
