At least three wolf pups were born last spring to the Lassen Pack, a pack of gray wolves that established in Northern California eight years ago. State biologists believe the new pups put California’s wolf population at between seven and 10 individuals. The new pups were born around April 15. About two months later, a remote camera spotted them about 100 miles south of the Oregon state line. Technicians from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife and USDA Wildlife Services tried unsuccessfully to trap and collar the wolves.

See the video of the pups and two adult wolves below. They can be heard vocalizing at the 1 minute mark.
