The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service confirmed there is a new wolf pack south of Jackson, between Jackson and the Hoback Junction.

A radio-collared female wolf dispersed from the Buffalo Pack near Jackson and settled south of town. The new pack will be referred to as the Pinnacle Peak Pack.

FWS's Ed Bangs reported: "At this time we think the pack contains 5-6 wolves, but subsequent monitoring will give a better estimate of how many wolves are in the pack and what area the pack uses."

The pack was discovered through collaboration with the Wyoming Game and Fish Department and local land owners who reported repeated wolf sightings in the area.
Editor's Note: Hoback Junction is north of Bondurant and Pinedale.
