Washington Wolf Packs: Nc'icn

February 2013

The Nc’icn pack has six members – including a successful breeding pair – as confirmed by aerial surveys,

In June 2012, two yearling wolves, one male and one female, were caught and radio-collared in the northeast portion of the Colville Indian Reservation in Ferry County.

Colville Confederated Tribes Fish and Wildlife staff first documented wolf tracks on the reservation in 2008 and produced remote motion-triggered camera pictures of wolves on the reservation in 2011. The pack name “Nc’icn” is a native language word for wolf.
