Biologists hope to capture, re-collar Rogue Pack’s alpha wolf, OR-7 | Local | Eugene, Oregon

MEDFORD — State and federal biologists are setting out traps nightly in hopes of catching and collaring gray wolf OR-7 or his mate so they can regain the tracking capabilities that ­allowed the world to tag along on his long journey for a mate. Biologists are using padded foothold traps and baiting them with a foul-smelling concoction to capture one of the wolves so they can attach a GPS-emitting radio collar before heavy cold sets in.
